Help of Door County’s FYRE program participated in the largest-ever “End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin Teen Summit” held in the Wisconsin Dells last month. FYRE stands for Forging Youth Relationships and Education. Help of Door County Executive Director Milly Gonzales says the experience will be beneficial in educating young people on what defines a healthy relationship.
Over 700 attendees were part of the Teen Summit, which included youth, parents, educators, activists, and mentors from around the state. Topics included toxic masculinity and identity crises faced by teens of color.
