Description

Please register with the library to attend this class. This teen/tween class is about teaching young people two major topics: stranger awareness, and self-defense techniques to escape from them.

We present social situations in the form of live skits, using participants in the class and ask them to behave as they normally would given the social situation at hand (using custom built styrofoam props: a bus, car, a 6 foot house, etc...). We then have the participant(s) reenact the situation live as if it were really happening to them being approached by a stranger (which is a performer from the event).

The following are the main topics we cover in the class:

1) how to be better aware of your surroundings and the dangers around you in knowing social situations where perpetrators might approach you and try to do harm to you or abduct you, and

2) how to use various self-defense techniques to avoid harm or abduction.

You must register with the library in order to attend this event. (We have posted this event on here so that any one who was not made aware of this event can now attend.)
