Boys and Girls club teaches teens to make smarter choices
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
Some Southwest Georgia teens got a lesson about teen pregnancy.
In recognition of National Teen Pregnancy Prevention month, the James Wilson Boys and Girls club in Albany had a teen maze about life choices. The maze had different stations showing teens the consequences of making good and bad choices in life.
Albany has a high teen pregnancy rate and organizers say they hope this event impacts the community.
"We have our teens that are not as focus as they should be and we would like to ask them and encourage them to regain that focus. Regain that will that they can continue to do better and continue to march forward to graduation, continue to march forward to a better life for themselves," said Timothy Robinson.
This was the first time the club had the teen maze at the club and they hope to have it again in the future.
