Our Mackenzie-Scott Teen Center partnered with criminal defense attorney Pam Dansby-Darden this month for an in-depth workshop on legal tangles and other issues facing teens. The workshop highlighted the most common mistakes teens make that result in felony convictions and time in prison, as well as minor scrapes with the law. The session also taught teens how to interact with and respond to police officers in different situations.
Our Mackenzie-Scott branch also began a collaboration with nearby La Pintoresca Teen Education Center to expand the number of summer activities available to teens. Thus far the partnership has resulted in guided hikes with the U.S. Forest Service, sport challenges at Jackie Robinson Park and at the Club, and field trips.
