This year’s Teen Maze event on November 16th and 17th was a big success! Despite wintry weather conditions, SCYC served over 300 students from four counties at this year’s Teen Maze event.
Now with the help of OBH funding, Teen Maze continues to reach new generations of youth in new areas of the Four Corners! Read this short blurb about our success story:
“Youth in general don’t make long-term decisions well; certain areas of the brain involving critical thinking and risk-taking don’t develop until later. Youth literally make decisions with limited brain power and these decisions affect the rest of their lives. However, positive adult guidance can give youth the leg-up they need to make good long-term decisions. Teen Maze does just that.”
Stay tuned for pictures of this year’s Teen Maze event coming soon!
