‘TWEENS TAKE CHARGE”
A new and innovative program for middle school aged girls
In response to the increasing number of teen pregnancies in the Waterbury area as well as the rapid increase in teen STDs, Carolyn’s Place has developed a proactive approach to help with this increasing “epidemic” called, “Tweens Take Charge.” This abstinence based program provides the tools to empower these middle school aged girls to make healthy life choices through discussions on topics such as self respect, choices and consequences, setting your boundaries ,and self control.
Our curriculum has been vetted by the Health and Physical Education Supervisor of Waterbury public schools and other public school administrators. This program has become a Police Activity League (PAL) program. PAL helps recruit participants from their members, while Carolyn’s Place provides the qualified instructor, the materials and our Center for the sessions. The program runs for eight weeks, and each session is one hour and 15 minutes in length. There are many fun activities, refreshments and prizes for attendance and participation.
We are taking registrations for the next program to begin February 20th. For more information
