Teen Pregnancy Seminar Planned

Louisiana has one of the highest teen birth rates in the country, and the Professional Women’s Group of Dress for Success Shreveport-Bossier is hoping to educate more teenagers about teen pregnancy and domestic violence.

The group is hosting a free seminar for high school girls called “Stay a Teen: Set your Standards High.” It will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 12 at the Volunteers of America Highland Center Gym, 520 Olive St., Shreveport.

“The group is hoping to make the girls aware of their options when they find themselves in less than desirable situations and where they can get help,” said Shantell Jefferson, assistant program coordinator.

Speakers for the event include Deb Brittan, education director of the Ark-La-Tex Crisis Pregnancy Center, and Mary Strong, domestic violence educator at Providence House. Lunch is included in the event.

To register for the event, call 221-8404 ext. 324.

The Professional Women’s Group is a career development support group made up of Dress for Success Shreveport-Bossier clients.
