The Town of Granby Youth Service Bureau offered its Safe Dates Boot Camp for the first time over winter break. Nine of the 10 middle-schoolers provided 100 percent positive reviews of the program, despite not being thrilled that they had been signed up to take the class in the first place!
Safe Dates explores healthy and unhealthy dating relationships. An evidence-based program, it is proven to reduce dating violence for the teens who complete it. The 10 one-hour sessions have been consolidated into a two-day, six-hour boot camp. Participants meet from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, Aug. 3–4, at the YSB. Dinner will be provided each day (the food got a thumbs up from the participants over winter break!). Please call AnneMarie at 860-844-5355 to register your tween or younger teen for this important class.
