Posted:

Some students and adults are taking PRIDE in themselves.

They're taking part in the PRIDE World Drug Prevention Conference at the Century Center.

Participants took the "Be the Change Walk" through Downtown South Bend today.

The conference allows participants to learn about the importance of making positive choices..

As well as drug and violence prevention.

The program allows people to reach out to their peers.

"I really think teenagers are where we have to start focusing some of our lifestyle changes. Our conference theme is Be the Change. And of you don't want to change then you're going to be watching all these people be their own change," said participant Ben Shultz.

Carolyne Wallace of Visit South Bend-Mishawaka, said, "Its a great conference for kids who are very concerned with their communities and the future of the kids from several states."
