Community Awareness Series: Promoting Healthy Behaviors
Our youth are our future’s greatest asset. Schools, parents, caregivers and communities all play a role in providing supportive pathways for our youth as they navigate childhood and adolescence. SCIP (School Community Intervention and Prevention) is partnering with Lincoln Public Schools, Bryan Independence Center and the Lancaster Prevention Coalition to put on a series of valuable presentations about how to support the health and well-being of our community’s youth. These events are open to parents, students, school professionals and community members.
February 27, 2018- Healthy Relationships Southwest High School (Auditorium) 6:30 p.m.
Presentation: Sue Andersen is the Community Education Coordinator and an Advocate at Voices of Hope. She has trained numerous first responders and gatekeepers on domestic and sexual violence and provided hundreds of awareness presentations throughout Lincoln/Lancaster County. Relationships contribute to the development of our youth. Friends, dating partners, parents/caregivers, teachers, coaches and other caring adults are often sources of support for youth. Characteristics such as, mutual respect, compromise, good communication and trust are all essential elements of a healthy relationship. Unsafe or unhealthy relationships can result in boundary issues, bullying or dating violence. Sue’s presentation will provide education, tools and resources as to how to best guide our children and adolescents in healthy and safe relationship development. April
