Teens make these decisions on a daily basis, and these decisions impact teens lives in myriad ways. Sometimes, adults understand the decisions teens make, and other times, adults need to know more about teens’ lives. At this meeting, we will celebrate good choices that teens make and discuss what we can do to encourage teens to make those choices.
As part of this evening, we will have a report from the Mankato area Drug Task Force, and a panel of people who work with our youth every day to promote responsible decision-making. There will be an opportunity to ask your questions and gain ideas as to what we all can do as a community to support our youth. That night will also include a question and answer session that features school counselors, social workers, liaison officers, and psychologists.
This meeting comes at an important time in the year. As we enter the spring season, our young people have many opportunities to enjoy various events our community has to offer. These events include spring sports, spring concerts, spring plays, proms, and, of course, graduation. With such events comes much excitement, celebration, and decision-making. As our teens celebrate their many accomplishments, we also want to encourage their responsible decision making.
Please join us on April 22 as a way to support our youth in Mankato.
