On March 8th 2019, 9th graders enrolled in Dawson County Junior High School participated in a “TEEN MAZE” coordinated by Family Connection’s Substance Abuse Task Force. The purpose of the maze was to challenge students to graduate, attend college and obtain a career without getting blocked by obstacles such as alcohol, drugs, probation, and a variety of other hurdles that could prevent them from reaching their goals.
Per Nancy Stites, Family Connection Coordinator, “This event took place because of the enthusiasm, generosity and concern for our youth by the agencies and organizations participating! Another reason we love Dawson County!”
The goal when creating the TEEN MAZE was not only to open students’ eyes to the consequences (good and bad) to the many choices they have to make daily; but also to open their eyes to the many opportunities for help and encouragement from local individuals and agencies within their reach.
Family Connection has received nothing but positive feedback regarding our first TEEN MAZE and would like to extend our gratitude to the many helpful partners who came together to make this event such a SUCCESS! We look forward to seeing you again next year!
