Did you know that approximately 1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner? Research studies reveal that 3 in 4 parents never discuss the warning signs of intimate partner violence with their children.
To raise awareness, the Jamie Kimble Foundation for Courage is partnering with Mecklenburg County, Carowinds, Arts & Science Council and Turning Point Services Inc. to provide a comprehensive educational curriculum to reinforce the development of healthy and respectful dating relationships.
Our first-ever Teens for Courage will be held on February 1, 2020 at Carowinds. This is a free event for High School students. Registration is required and limited to 500 students. Participants will:
* Network with students from High Schools in Charlotte-Mecklenburg and surrounding counties
* Earn Six hours of Volunteer Credits
* Learn how to start a Courage Club
* Create a logo and activities for your club for the entire year
Morning refreshments and lunch will be served. Six hours of volunteer credit will be awarded to all participants.
