Highlight a Success Story for this month:
A young woman at the Sasha Bruce House became a peer counselor, including helping to lead two peer counseling sessions at the June 19 Seminar. She explained why it is important to her to be sexually abstinent, and she answered questions from other youth. I am extremely proud of her, and I know that so many more youth in all kinds of difficult circumstances can benefit from the ULTRA Teen Choice program. Also, another young woman from Sasha Bruce served as a guest lecturer for the presentations at Sasha Bruce, and she did a great job. Juanita Jones from SWWR and Sasha Bruce wants the ULTRA Teen Choice program to get out to many more youth.
