BJWL: Empower Me Healthy
During the 2015 – 2016 and 2016-2017 school years, SLB Radio, in partnership with Family Resources‘ out-of-school time program at BJWL in Glen Hazel, convened a group of middle school-aged girls in the Empower Me Healthy program. While learning about digital audio recording, the group spent time discussing how to establish, build, and maintain healthy life relationships with an emphasis on reducing teen dating violence (bullying/harassment) as well as maintaining a healthy self-image. Through mentoring and the expertise of partnering organizations, the girls will be armed and empowered with knowledge and skills to share with peers, parents, teachers and the community at large.

Young Women, Big Voices Podcast
As part of the program, participating girls helped to create audio outlining information learned through training from the Women’s Center and Shelter Hands Are Not For Hurting program, resources from staff at Family Resources and Women’s Center and Shelter and held discussions on healthy and unhealthy relationships. This audio is featured on a StoryBox™ unit housed at the BJWL Glen Hazel location. Listen below to the audio found from that program.
