Workshops, PTA Meeting Focus on Teens, Gender Roles, Sex and Consent

Hallways, a nonprofit focusing on harm prevention issues, led a discussion on trends and statistics relating to teens and sexual violence at January’s PTA meeting in a presentation, “Talking with Your Teen About Sexual Consent.” Hallways’ director and a counselor had previously led two workshops with HCHS juniors and seniors, one on gender roles and another on consent. Detailed minutes and findings from those workshops as well suggestions about how we as parents can talk to our teenage children about sex and consent can be found here.  The PowerPoint presentation from that evening is found here.
