BEACON SCHOOLS TO TARGET TEEN PROBLEMS

Beacon Schools is launching a program to educate teens about pregnancy prevention, anti-violence practices, developing a positive self-image and basic life skills.
As a result of a grant from the U.S. Justice Department's Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Program, Beacon Schools in January will initiate the national program known as TOP (V.I. Teen Outreach Program).
Dr. Valerie George, executive director of Beacon Schools, said the program is open to any junior high student, not just problem teens.
Thirteen V.I. education and social science professionals will be trained as facilitators over the Christmas break. Students' orientation will be held Jan.12.
