Growing up and understanding it

Our youth grow up so fast and do we always dread or not know how to talk to them about the changes and feelings that they are experiencing? Gwinnett Extension would like to invite you to bring your boy on one night and girl on another for an introductory way to talk to your youth. The topics will include changes to the body, puberty facts and misconceptions  and much more. Click here to find out more about dates and time.  We only offer this session one time each year so don't miss out. The sessions will be conducted at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center in Lawrenceville.
