|Making a Difference program for pre- and young teens set for July 18|
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 a meal will be provided during the day-long sessions and participants will receive a $10 Target gift card for completing the program.
