Campus Safety Program

The second annual "Campus Safety Lecture For Women Only" was last Thursday and it was a huge success!!!!!

Hillary Bennett, 2007's Trinity College Violence Prevention Coordinator gave tips to stay safe on a college campus. She also spoke about personal safety issues, alcohol and drug use and sexual assault prevention.

A panel of recent FHS grads also spoke about thier personal experiences on campus. They shared stories about life and making friends on campus and answered questions from the audience.
Our participation doubled since last year and many of the students who participated felt that they learned quite a deal about what to expect next year. We are proud to have partnered with the Farmington FOCUS group and Farmington High School to provide such an essential program to our Teen girls. Next year we hope to offer another lecture geared toward Teen men and the experiences that they will gain on campus as well.
We would also like to thank the Bella Salon and Naples Pizza on Farmington Avenue for their gernerous support of this program and their interest in the lives of Farmington Teens.
