Empower WY Conducting School Workshops

Empower Wyoming has been making the rounds to area schools providing personal safety and boundary-setting workshops.

In recent days, the organization conducted a workshop at the Clear Creek Middle School and Director Francine Russell described the workshop to Big Horn Mountain Radio…

According to Russell, a nationally-acclaimed self-defense expert, the message to the girls was to learn the value of saying “no”…

For the boys, the message centered on the hearing the word “yes”…

Program Director Francine Russell discussed the growing problem of pornography among today’s youth and how it’s fast becoming a “norm” because of technology…

Opening dialogue on the subject can be an “eye-opener” for many of the students participating in the organization’s workshops…

She went on to describe the extent of the problem…

Russell is quick to point out that no generation of human beings have experienced the availability of this type of material and no one knows the long-term effect on society.

Empower Wyoming is a non-profit whose programs teach life skills aimed at developing confidence and self-reliance by providing students with practical tools for emotional and physical safety.
