Twelve Talks to Have with Teens

Twelve Talks to Have With Teens

The Big Idea

Using existing campaigns and in consultation with our youth research interns, create a repository of information, resources and conversation starters about topics selected by parents, teens and community experts. Then, in a non-judgmental style, promote 1 topic per month that adults are encouraged to discuss with teens in their lives, leveraging pre-existing, evidence-based state or national campaigns, and including best practices for promoting productive dialogue with young people.
