Teens Talk About Tough Topics

Date: February 4, 2013

Teens Talk About Tough Topics:  cu@the 4um -- For Parents and Teens -- February 4, 2013, at 5:30 pm at the Lighthouse, Pittsfield Boys and Girls Club, Melville Street. There will be pizza and salad and $50 Big Y and Target gift card raffles.

Teens face a lot of tough issues these days and need to be able to talk to the caring adults in their lives.  The problem is sometimes the adults don't know how to navigate these hot button issues:  drugs, alcohol, sex, bullying, relationships.

At this youth-led forum you'll hear about communication issues from the youth perspective and get some tools and tips for making the waters smoother at home.

Who should attend:  Teens, parents, guardians and other caring adults

Organized by the Pittsfield Prevention Partnership

Participating Groups:  Barrington Stage Playwright Mentoring Project, Gladys Allen Brigham Community Center Teen Outreach Program, Students Against Destructive Decisions from Taconic High School and Reid Middle School, the Brien Center
