Teens attending the two and a half hour workshop will be treated to a pizza lunch, where they will meet with the guest speakers and community leaders. After lunch, the teens will participate in a discussion period, where they’ll discuss the topic of bullying.

The teens will be able to address their concerns and ask questions of the panelists, which also include Officer Kristopher Packwood of the Elk Grove Police Department, Lydia Ajay, co-owner of Ajay’s Karate and herself a 4th-degree black belt, Bobby Uppal, a certified drug and alcohol counselor, a representative from WEAVE, Inc., and Margaret Arsenault, executive director of Face2Face Youth Group, Inc., the event’s organizer.

Following the discussion period, there will be a short 10 to 15-minute break, during which the special guests will be available to the media for short interviews.

In the second segment of the workshop, teens will break into groups and learn some simple but effective self-defense techniques from martial arts instructors, led by Mrs. Ajay.

The workshop is being held this Saturday, November 3rd, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., at the Teen Center USA, Elk Grove, at 8978 Elk Grove Blvd, Elk Grove, CA 95624.
