Survey Results at Talk With a Teen Girl Today

Did you know that from 2008 to 2011 (just 3 years!), juvenile arrests for girls in Montgomery County tripled? That statistic came as a shock to me. But you will see evidence of it in the peer survey girls from Crittenton Services conducted.

You will also learn about girls’ thoughts on other important issues like the obesity epidemic and the fact that more people are now living in poverty. The results of the survey, combined with a panel discussion, will give us meaningful insight into the real lives of Montgomery County girls.

Please join me on February 22 for “Talk With a Teen Girl Today.” The forum will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. at the Silver Spring Civic Building.
