– Teen-led sessions to inspire teenagers to speak up and advice geared towards parents for teaching their adolescents about healthy relationships

According to a press release, “This event will equip teens and adults to grow in understanding each other’s perspectives and concerns and generate plans of action attendees can take back to their own communities.”
In addition, members of the Teens Against Dating Violence advisory board will be leading the Teen Summit. The advisory board consists of nine high school students in metro Atlanta.
“As a student, I can relate to not wanting to discuss dating violence,” second year advisory board member Brooke Pearson said in the press release. “I feel as a board member that it’s my duty to let other teens and their parents know that this is an issue that needs to be discussed and not ignored.”
