Twelve Talks to
Have With Teens

Twelve Talks

In 2017, Jeffco CTC held focus groups with over 65 diverse youth from Jefferson County, Colorado, to better understand the root causes of youth substance misuse, violence, and hopelessness and anxiety. What we found out was simple, and yet also profound. 

Youth need more support from trusted adults in their lives, especially parents and guardians. 

Twelve Talks to Have with Teen was created to be a resource to help you be a trusted adult for a teen in your life. 

All Twelve Talks

If your organization would like to provide Twelve Talks content on your website, blog, social media, or newsletter, please download our promotion toolkits, currently available in EnglishSpanishRussian, and Vietnamese.
