Teen Think Tank: National Candy Month

Hi Everyone!

What sweeter way to kick off the first month of summer than by celebrating National Candy Month? Candy and treats get recognized all month long for their contributions to the way we celebrate together. Who has the sweet tooth in your family? What are your go-to candy favorites? Let us know by emailing jplyouthservices@coj.net and putting "Teen Think Tank" in the subject line.

Stay safe and have a great week!
