CMCA Teen Maze
Audience: Homepage
Posted by: Hayley Greene.
Location: Gymnasiums of SHS, SEBHS and PMHS Contact: 764-9954
Start Time: 11:00 AM End Time: 3:00 PM

More than 1600 tenth and eleventh-grade students from Bulloch County’s public and private schools will participate in one of five enactments of the Teen Maze.  Emily Austin, a CMCA coordinator, and other CMCA staff and volunteers will provide real-life, interactive exercises and information to teens about the positive and negative results of the choices they make. 

The Teen Maze scenarios teach students about the consequences of risky sex,sexually transmitted diseases, teen pregnancy, labor and delivery, teen parenting, peer and media pressure, stupid tricks (i.e. huffing, the choking game, etc.), substance abuse, tobacco, drugs, alcohol, rehabilitation, legal consequences, HIV/AIDS, bullying, particularly cyber bullying,and career and educational choices.  The scenarios promote abstinence, teach students how to face potential situations, how to prepare a positive defense to prevent situations, and encourage graduating from high school.

To help play out the scenarios that are assigned to students, more than 40 community volunteers from the following entities will be on site each session:  Air EVAC, Bulloch Alcohol and Drug Council, Bulloch Co EMS, Bulloch County Health Department, Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office, Core Credit Union, Bulloch County and Ogeechee Circuit District Attorney’s Office, Drug Free Communities, Statesboro First Baptist Church, Georgia Southern University, Ogeechee Technical College, Statesboro Police Department, Statesboro Primitive Baptist, Statesboro Regional Sexual Assault Center, and Willingway Hospital. Graduate students from Georgia Southern University’s counseling program will be at the Maze’s end to conduct exit interviews and discuss with each student what they learned.

Safety Note:  The vehicles belonging to the volunteering public safety personnel will be one site during the events.  Please be aware of this because it could appear to the general public that a crisis was taking place at the school.
