  1. Aloha Nicole – this is Nancy Findeisen. I have a program coming up on November 19, 2016 for high students and their parent or adult guardian. It is a funded research program for families to communicate together about some of the more sensitive issues, like healthy relationships and sexual health. I am included a write up I just submitted to Maui News. Is there a chance, I might be able to submit a small article (or the same as below) in your next edition?

    Linking Families and Teens – LiFT – an OPPORTUNITY on MAUI
    LiFT is a 5-hour program that brings high school students (9-12th grade) and an adult (parent, grandparent, family friend, neighbor, aunt, etc.) together to share family values, strengthen family bonds, and talk about the tough stuff – healthy relationships and sexual health. Research shows that teens want to learn sensitive information from their parents, and teens that are able to communicate with a trusted adult in their life are less likely to engage in risky behaviors and make better decisions. The program is free for all participants.

    As part of a Federal Grant program, all participants will take a confidential survey before starting the program. Participants will then be randomly divided into one of two groups, a survey-only group, or the LiFT group. Both groups will receive food, cash, and prizes for participation, and be provided with opportunities to bond with family.

    In interested, please call or text Nancy Findeisen, Community Outreach Educator, 808.868.9177. You can also email her at nancy.findeisen@ppgnhi.org. LiFT will take place Saturday, November 19, 2016 at Maui Youth & Family Service, Makawao. Sign-up ends November 1, 2016.
