Teen Maze

The third annual Teen Maze event was held at the Georgia National Guard Armory in October 2013 to expose 8th grade students to various life altering events which should help them to recognize the consequences associated with decisions they make and activites they participate in.  Stations were set up to let them interact in such areas as: car crash scene, DUI, dating and decisions, responsibilities associated with a baby, etc.
