Six Juneau youth who attended Lead On! spent months planning a free event for teens in Juneau to connect with one another and learn about healthy relationships. The event, TeenTopia was a huge success with over 150 teens attending. Students watched the healthy relationship video made by Juneau youth, discussed healthy relationships and had time to enjoy free food and connect with one another. 53 teens completed a survey after the event and 90% of those surveyed reported that they somewhat or very much improved their knowledge of what a healthy relationship looks like!
The six Juneau teens who dreamed this event into reality are: Justin Sleppy, Rylee Landen, Deanna Hobbs, Analicia Castaneda-Felipe, Rose Seamount, and Iris Pilcher. Gene Tagaban facilitated the event and performed.
