The Georgia College High Achievers will teach teens the consequences of risky behavior today during TEEN MAZE.

An interactive simulation allows teens to explore real-life situations virtually and the consequences of their decisions and behavior.

“TEEN MAZE is a positive way to impact youth of Baldwin County,” said Kenneth Daniels, High Achievers program community organizer. “We’re giving students the knowledge needed to create brighter futures through the simulation.”

More than 100 Baldwin County teens will make their way through twists and turns of TEEN MAZE beginning at 3 p.m. in the Student Activities Center’s Magnolia Ballroom on Hancock Street.

The event is free and open to the public.

The High Achievers is a youth education program exposing ninth- through 12th-graders to cultural and leadership opportunities, engaging them in community-changing projects and teaching them leadership skills.

“This program is an investment in our youth,” said Sequena Moon, High Achievers program coordinator.
“Our High Achievers are trained to teach literary, communication and fine arts skills to area children.”
