Michaels interviewed CEO Margaret Arsenault and Director Mark Arsenault about the upcoming Girls Talk event, as well as National Suicide Prevention Month.
If you didn’t catch the stories when they aired yesterday (or you’d like to hear them again), we’ve posted recordings of both stories here.
Below are the transcripts from both stories:
Face2Face Story #1 on Newstalk 1530 KFBK (09/19/2018)
Joe Michaels: The Face2Face Youth Group holds monthly discussions – one for boys, another for girls – allowing teens to discuss concerns with each other and adults in a non-judgmental environment.
Mark Arsenault: Our mission is to improve the emotional and social well-being of youth, by encouraging kids to spend less time on electronics. Cell phones and tablets and what not.
Joe Michaels: Director Mark Arsenault says the gatherings help improve teens’ social, mental, and emotional health.
Mark Arsenault: By being able to communicate their ideas, their feelings, in front of peers, they get to not only hear other people talk about things that they might be afraid to bring up, it also encourages them to talk to others.
Joe Michaels: In recognition of National Suicide Prevention Month, Face2Face is making Friday’s Girl Talk session free for those who pre-register online with the discount code F2FFAMILY. Joe Michaels. News Radio KFBK.
Face2Face Story #2 on Newstalk 1530 KFBK (09/19/2018)
Joe Michaels: The Face2Face Youth Group aims to improve the emotional and social well-being of teens by encouraging kids to spend less time on their cell phones and electronic devices, and more on in-person, offline activities.
Mark Arsenault: That can range from classes, sports activities, group discussions… Anything to get kids interacting in person, outside of the school environment, so they can have more natural, face-to-face interactions.
Joe Michaels: Director Mark Arsenault says the nonprofit offers monthly discussions; one for boys, another for girls.
Mark Arsenault: It’s really an open forum. The kids can talk about whatever they want. We know that youth might be more comfortable discussing certain things with trusted adults other than their parents.
