The Illinois Holocaust Museum

Panel 2 of 3

The new Cebrin Goodman Teen Institute officially launched with hundreds of Illinois high school students at the start of this year’s Teen Institute conference in Bloomington.  In partnership with the Goodman family, the CGTI organizers proudly announced the name change and that the program had the funds to continue and expand. The excited teens celebrated as music blared and confetti, ballons, and beach balls were playfully tossed.
