|Making a Difference program for pre- and young teens set for June 16|
If you need a way to start a discussion of sexuality with your preteen or young teenager, a program being offered by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District in association with the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment can help.
This free program is called Making a Difference - Teen Pregnancy & STD Prevention Class and is for 11- to 13-year-olds who live in Johnson County. This program covers topics such as puberty, healthy relationships, self esteem, peer pressure, abstinence, teen pregnancy, and STDs. The class will use games, worksheets, videos, and role-playing activities to make the sessions fun and engaging. Healthy snacks and dinner will be provided during the day-long sessions and participants will receive a $10 Target gift card for completing the program.
To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under youth and then under fitness & health. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “wellness.”
Making a Difference consists of one eight-hour session and is free of charge. This program is offered beginning at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, June 16, at the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment offices at 6000 Lamar Ave., Mission.
