THIS WEEKEND: Events for teens and parents

On Saturday, the United Federation of Teachers is holding its annual parent conference, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. This year's theme is "Strengthening the Home-School Partnership." Registration was required but if you're interested in attending the conference, which attracts more than 3,000 parents, you might still be able to get in. For more information, call 212-598-9205.

And Saturday evening, teens in Brooklyn will be throwing a concert to benefit Darfur relief. "Teens for Darfur" is the third annual benefit concert thrown by the vibrant Brooklyn teen rocker community; in previous years teens raised money for street children in the Philippines and relief efforts in New Orleans. This looks like a fun way to support kids' artistic and philanthropic interests, neither of which get enough attention in their schools. 6 p.m. at the Old Stone House in Park Slope. $5 for kids; $10 for grown ups.
