On Wednesday, October 18, middle school parents and teens gathered at the George Washington Middle School library to participate in Healthy Conversations, an interactive workshop about making choices during adolescence. During this event, families learned about foundational relationship building, strategies to show love and support, and how to address difficult topics, such as va**ng, cannabis, alcohol, and dating. Families also had time to practice addressing difficult scenarios together.

This workshop was hosted by SAPCA, the ACPS Family and Community Engagement Center - ACPS FACE Center, the Alexandria Campaign on Adolescent Pregnancy (ACAP), and the Keep It 360 Peer Advocates.

The Keep It 360 Peer Advocates are a group of Alexandria youth who work closely with SAPCA, ACAP, and the Alexandria Sexual Assault Center to support prevention and outreach efforts.
