SUFFERN - Teens between the ages of 12 and 19 got to interact with business professionals, athletes and entertainers from Rockland County on Thursday as part of a youth summit hosted by the non-profit Rockland Legacy at Rockland Community College.

The three-hour event was aimed at imparting professional skills and lessons to the young attendees.

"It's an opportunity to give them some light," said Steve Canal, a Nyack High School graduate and best-selling author. "Sometimes, kids just want to know what the experience is like, is this something that's for me?"

Rockland Legacy says that it hopes to help the community in the future with scholarships, mentoring programs and other efforts.
