In Their Shoes Presentations

Scenario-based training designed to help participants talk about what dating is like for today’s teens – from their perspective.  Participants will become teen chara​cters, make choices about their relationship, and see what happens.  The activity generates discussion about characteristics of unhealthy relationships and what opportunities/resources exist to support those experiencing them.
