Two Southern Door and two Sturgeon Bay high school students will have a chance to attend a three-day conference in Wisconsin Dells that aims to educate on teen dating violence. From February 24th to February 26th, the teenagers will take part in the Annual Teen Summit, an event organized and held by End Abuse Wisconsin. Steve Vickman, the executive director of Help of Door County, said he believes the students will come back ready to share what they've learned with their peers.
According to Vickman, one in five teenagers will experience some form of domestic violence when they date. This year's Annual Teen Summit includes 24 workshops, roundtable discussions, speakers and topic-related performances.
