Project Description

Teen workshops seek to help at-risk adolescents

Our new Teen Outreach program is aimed at children 11 to 16 years old who have been identified by their school administrators to have certain risk factors. These young adults are invited to participate in psycho-educational workshops, where they discuss topics such as substance abuse, teen pregnancy, suicide and depression, school drop-out, and domestic violence. The workshops integrate art and vocational therapy. The program also orchestrates monthly conferences with guest speakers who address the public secondary and high school students on topics that can impact the next generation and shape our community.
