Children’s Cove Teen Task Force
The teen task force concluded their work this week with airing a PSA to the MRHS students that addressed online sextortion and the role that men play in reducing abuse. The students worked for six months along with Jacob Stapledon (Community Engagement and Education Program Manager) to learn more about Children’s Cove and the topic of child sexual abuse and received guidance from the Pierce Cote communications firm as they created and produced the PSA. Thank you to all the community partners that were part of this project!
