Teen Night Out - Rural Programs

  • Teen Night Out is a general name for the program- other names can be used.
  • KEEP stands for Kids, Educate, Experience, Participate.The KEEP program is held in three small rural communities with students from 9 schools.
  • Programs are held after school (3:30 to 5:00 PM) to take advantage of school-based transportation because of the rural distances.
  • Many parents are working and cannot attend. Instead a special parent night is held twice a year. Students plan the event and prepare a meal. Speakers provide information and take home materials.
  • Each site meets 2 x a month and activities include an educational topic, social time and a meal at the end.
  • Mentors are recruited from students looking for leadership opportunities who are not involved in a sport or other school club.
