Ginger KatzHARTFORD—Raising a teen is no easy task, and for grandparents raising teenagers the thought of broaching tough subjects like alcohol use and bullying may be even more daunting. Community Renewal Team’s Generations Campus that houses grandparents raising grandchildren is all too familiar with these struggles and is about to kick off a lecture and workshop series to help foster beneficial intergenerational communication strategies.

January grandparents and their teens were invited to the first free presentation which focuses on the myriad of issues surrounding alcohol and drug abuse among teens to be led by Ginger Katz, founder of The Courage to Speak Foundation. Katz became an author and motivational speaker following the untimely death of her   son due to a drug overdose in 1996.

Katz discuss warning signs of alcohol/ substance abuse, the impact of addiction on families and ways to recognize risk behaviors among other topics. Reservations are required, and general information can be obtained through Yolanda Oritz at 860-895-6627 or at ortizy@crtct.org.
