Reality Party for Parents


Take a tour through a local home set up to portray a teen party with youth actors playing out scenarios and voicing concerns expressed by local teens and young adults. 30 minute tours will start every hour and will be followed by a 30 minute debrief and discussion for a total of one hour participation. 7-10 tours  per day.

WHY PARENTS?  Our goal is to help promote relevant and meaningful conversations between parents and their teens about risky party environments, current trends, alcohol and drug use.  We also value and encourage discussions between parents and the sharing of ideas for family and community strategies to help keep our kids safe and healthy. 

Events are generally coordinated in partnership with local law enforcement, school districts and other youth serving organizations.
