About this Event

REGISTRATION FORMS WILL BE E-MAILED TO PARTICIPANTS. REGISTRATION FORMS ARE DUE ON DAY OF THE EVENT OR PARTICIPANTS WILL NOT BE GRANTED ENTRY INTO THE MAZE.

During the Maze, youth will not have a “choice” about the decisions they make regarding sexual involvement, drug/alcohol use, texting & driving, and other behaviors. Instead, they will pull scripts or spin a wheel to learn the “good or bad news.” Youth who pull scripts that avoid risky behavior will be “rewarded,” while other will learn the potential consequences of poor decisions. Since paths are randomly assigned, no two participants will have the same encounter (much like in real life).

The program is also in recognition of Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.
