How Can Our Community Prevent Teen Pregnancy?
The Women's Fund of Winston-Salem
invites you to enjoy
Dessert & Discussion
during a
Social Change Exchange Community Forum
Tuesday, August 30th
6:30 to 8:30 PM
Temple Emanuel
201 Oakwood Drive, Winston-Salem

Forsyth County has one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in the state. Each year, approximately 800 teenagers become pregnant in Forsyth County - enough to fill over 15 school buses. 

These young women are significantly less likely to graduate than their peers and may face a lifetime of economic hardship.

Please join us for our third Social Change Exchange Community Forum which will focus on the steps our community can take to prevent teen pregnancy. 


Jean Workman, a Trainer with the NC School Health Training Center and Board Chair of The Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Campaign of NC, will provide a review of the current status of teen pregnancy in our state and the implementation of the Healthy Youth Act. 

Students will share their perspectives about the issue, and then we will explore how our community can take action to ensure that young people are educated and equipped to make healthy choices about their lives.

Space is limited; RSVPs requested. Childcare provided; see RSVP form.
