For girls in 7-8 grade, and must be accompanied by a paid adult.
Young teens experience a lot more freedom with their environment, relationships and the internet. 1 in 4 girls will experience a sexual assault during their youth, 80-90% by people they know, and 10-20% by strangers. We will teach the best ways to recognize and avoid danger, and escape if necessary with some simple skills. It is also important they know how to tell and who to tell even when it is difficult. We will also discuss ideas for internet safety, and peer pressure with drugs and alcohol.
