We’re thrilled to announce the 4th Annual #iStand2015Summit at Evans High School!
The #iStand2015Summit is a one-day conference in which youth will engage in activities that promote healthy relationships & alternatives to violence. Event speakers will teach skills that empower & encourage youth to make safe, smart relationship choices.
Parents- this is a great opportunity to engage in conversations surrounding teen dating abuse and methods to discuss healthy relationships with your teen.
Added bonus: All youth in attendance will have the opportunity to earn community service hours and network with community leaders!
