Talk with a Teen Girl Today
Wednesday, February 22, 2012 from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM (EST)
Silver Spring, MD
Please join us on Wednesday, February 22 from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm and participate in the launch of "Talk with a Teen Girl Today" campaign. The overarching goal is to raise awareness of both the issues confronting Montgomery County girls and the critical roles that the community can play in working with teen girls to address those issues. A panel comprised of teen girls will share the findfings from a survey developed by fellow Crittenton program participants (SNEAKERS and PEARLS).
