Teen Life Maze Coming to Aiken County

We’re Hosting a Teen Maze Event for Parents and Youth

AYE Dec2016 PosterHelping Hands will be hosting the first ever teen life maze in Aiken County during the holiday break on Tuesday, December 20th!

The maze will take place from 2pm until 5pm in gym one of the H. Odell Weeks Center located at 1700 Whiskey Road. Registration is open now and participants are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible!

The event, which is the first of its kind in our community, is sponsored by Helping Hands and the South Carolina Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy (SC Campaign). It’s free to community youth, grades six and up and their parents/guardians.

The interactive maze was created to encourage youth and their parents/guardians to start a continuous, open and honest conversation about love, sex, relationships and making good, sound choices that will impact their futures in a positive manner.

“This is not your typical workshop; this maze will give youth a chance to learn valuable life lessons in a hands-on way,” stated our Director of Community Programming Kandace Cave.

Parents and other caring adults are also invited to attend and participate in the free Parent Power session led by AYE Community Educator Kevin Banks and Beth DeHart, Project Manager for the SC Campaign.

Several partner agencies will also be on site to educate attendees on other community services and to encourage actively thinking about consequences of risky behaviors in a fun, interactive, yet eye-opening manner.

Other features included during the three-hour event will be a teen day party with a disc jockey, free food, tons of give-aways, video games and more.

To register or learn more about the event, visit www.AikenYouthEmpowerment.org or call Kandace Cave at (803) 648-3456 today!
