“In today's current social climate, Teenagers have a lot to navigate through and around, they have barriers blocking their progress daily. One of those barriers is communication - they're losing the ability to effectively speak to one another and authority. I'm so excited about Let's Talk Teens because this is a subject matter that deserves our attention, they are our future leaders! And Bree has the experience, heart and knowledge to get the conversation started. So let's start talking!”
