Who better than teens to identify needs and ideas to involve their peers in wellness & prevention! We are starting a youth committee, called TNP Teens for now. Norwalk teens, we want YOU! TNP Teens will be facilitated by Laila McGeorge, our Prevention Intern, a recent grad of Sacred Heart University.
During COVID, what kids (and adults!) need more than anything is to be social and feel meaningfully engaged. Bring your ideas about ways to engage with your peers (besides Google)!! Organizational meeting next Wednesday at 3pm.
Just a few ideas from other communities:
In Westport, the Teen Awareness Group (TAG) organizes awareness activities for their peers and teaches middle schoolers. In Fairfield, teens are sharing resources about mental health and crisis supports, making videos for middle schoolers, and surveying other high schoolers about vaping. In Norwalk, some health classes are working on developing information and videos for this website.
