Tonight @ 6pm Lance’s Journal on Channel 10/11 News will be featuring our very own “Revolution.” This will be dealing with dating violence and healthy relationships.

REVOLUTION

Revolution is a grant funded group which strives to inform teens about the dangers of dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.  We also provide education on the characteristics of healthy relationships. If you are between the ages of 14 and 20 and are interested in becoming a member or if you are interested in us doing a performance for your civic group or school for FREE, call Abbie T. or Erin at the Center @ 402-564-2155.
