Community Presentations 

In collaboration with Children Services, Dayton Public Schools, MVH-Mahogany’s Child Program, and YWCA Teen Services, we offer programming and research based, best practice curriculum. Our programs are designed to help young ladies eliminate risky behaviors and promote conflict resolution to help them develop a strong sense of purpose, and positive self-esteem by taking a critical look at themselves, and their lives. Through collaboration these social service agencies pull their resources together to best meet the individual needs of our teen community. 

Teen Services also offers one-time presentations dealing with other teen related topics such as: self-esteem, healthy relationships, pregnancy prevention, dating violence, healthy minds/healthy bodies, hygiene, importance of education, setting goals and expectations, and money management. To schedule a presentation, call 461-5550 ext.135.
