Walk-Aware

May is Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month!

While  teen  pregnancy  rates  have  been  on  a  national  decline,  studies  show  that  one  out  of  four  teen  parents  have  a  second  child before  the  age  of  20.    Each  year,  Broward  School  Social  Workers,  in  collaboration  with  community  partners,  host  Walk-Aware   –   A  Teen  Movement  designed   to  prevent  teen  pregnancy  and  promote  abstinence  and  healthy  lifestyles.

Walk-Aware,  held  at  a  local  park  on  the  first  Friday  in  May,  has  been  an  annual  event  since  2008.    Each  year  over  500  students from  middle  and  high  schools  walk  through  an  open-­‐air  resource  fair  and  participate  in  small  group  dialogue,  presentations, lectures  and  workshops  that  aim  to  promote  positive  youth outcomes.
