Sponsored by Washington County Family Connection & Communities In Schools & WACO Archway Partnership
In an effort to encourage our young people to make good choices that positively impact their future and this community; several organizations have partnered to sponsor a “Teen Maze”. A Teen Maze is a life-sized interactive ‘game’ that students can advance through by “chance”. During the Maze, students do not have a “choice” about the decisions they “make” regarding life choices. They will learn the consequences of Teen sex, underage drinking, texting while driving and drug use.
Teens in our community are making choices everyday which have monumental effects on their future. The consequences of their decisions have far-reaching effects impacting not only you and me, but future generations. Take teenage pregnancy, for example. According to the website www.thenationalcampaign.org., early pregnancy and childbearing is closely linked to a host of critical social issues, including poverty and income disparity, child well-being, out–of-wedlock birth, and education . If more children in this country were born to parents who are ready and able to care for them, we would see a significant reduction in a host of social problems affecting children in this country.
We would love for you to join us in an effort to impact our young people in the community with this important message. The Teen Maze will be conducted on Monday, March 18, 2013 at 8:30am-2:30pm at the WACO Boys & Girls Club, 320 Riddleville Road Sandersville, GA A preview of the Maze will be conducted on Saturday, March 16, from 4:00pm until 6:00pm.
