Teen and Family Life Series

Teen and Family Life Series 2016-17

RRUUC's Teen and Family Life Series is designed to give teens and parents a place to learn, discuss, and share about deep, important issues.

By offering opportunities for teens and families to come together in a safe space, we hope to encourage open dialogue within and across families, peer groups, and communities.

All programs are open to the public.

 

 

Screenagers Friday, October 7 at 7:00 p.m.

In Screenagers, filmmaker Delaney Ruston explores family struggles over all of the screens in our lives and our children's lives.  Authors, psychologists and scientists weigh in on how our obsessions with electronic media effect our children's development and family life and offer solutions to help us all navigate in a healthy way. 

After the showing, we will offer a discussion and a take-home guide for families.  

Tickets are $10 and available here.  Children and youth are free.

Body Image Workshop Saturday, November 5 at 6:00 p.m.

Join photographer Alyscia Cunningham for a workshop on body image.  Through media, lecture, and discussion, she will lead us through a process of discovery about how we view ourselves and others.  We will wrestle with the questions:

What is beauty and who decides? How have we lost sight of self-love? Why is it important to embrace our authenticity?

This program is suitable for middle and high school students and their families. The cost is $10 per person.  Register here.

 

The Hunting Ground Saturday, March 25 at 7:00 p.m.

The Hunting Ground examines the rape culture on college campuses.  First person accounts, experts, and campus administrators paint a picture of an epidemic of sexual assault.  What can be done?  What can students of all genders and parents do to make a difference?

After the showing, we will offer a discussion and take-home resources.  This film is suitable for high school age and older.

Tickets are $10.  High Schoolers are free.
