Quest 4 Respect Scavenger Hunt for Teens at Destin Commons
Teens are invited to a Quest 4 Respect Social Media Scavenger Hunt and DJ music party at Destin Commons on Friday, Feb. 3 starting at 6pm. Shelter House and Quest 4 Respect team up to educate teens on healthy relationships.
One in 10 high school students has been hit, slapped or physically hurt by a boyfriend or girlfriend. As we recognize Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month in February, Shelter House and Project Respect present a fun new event that will teach local teens about healthy relationships and warning signs for unsafe relationships.
Quest 4 Respect is a social media scavenger hunt starting at 6 p.m. on Friday, February 3 at Destin Commons. Cards with clues will take teens on an Instagram scavenger hunt throughout the shopping center where they will snap pictures for a chance to win prizes. Teens that finish the scavenger hunt will be entered to win a big prize pack with numerous items donated by Destin Commons restaurants and retailers. The party continues until 8 p.m. with DJ 30A, a photo booth, glow sticks and more.
“Many parents don’t realize it, but teen dating violence does happen right here in our community,” said Shelter House Executive Director Rosalyn Iovieno. “Shelter House and Project Respect work to educate teens about red flags in relationships and stopping the cycle of violence before it even starts. It is our hope that the positive messages teens receive at Quest 4 Respect will set them up for success in future healthy relationships.”
Quest 4 Respect is a free event for all teens. Pre-registration is not required. More information can be found on the Project Respect Facebook page at www.facebook.com/
Project Respect is the prevention sub-committee of the Okaloosa Walton Domestic Violence Coordinating Council. The group is made of community members working to prevent violence. We start trying to prevent domestic violence from occurring in children and teens. Most children learn about relationships through imitation, by watching their parents or guardians, other teens and the media (i.e. TV, movies, etc.). We start with teaching kids while they are young how to have healthy relationships. We hope this will eventually end the cycle of violence.
