Teens Find Guidance In Maze Of Life

For a teen, finding their way through life can be kind of like working their way out of a maze.

Tuesday, several Omaha groups were trying to help them choose the correct path.

It was called "Teen Maze."

Teens walked through a maze set up at Metro Community College South campus today.

Around each corner, they found a different life lesson.

They ranged from drugs and alcohol, sex, and even suicide.

Kids say its lessons help them understand the impact each decision has.

“If you make a choice, what the consequences are, like what could happen in your life,” says Lauren Mendoza, a 13-year-old.

“We want to tell them that there's real life consequences that affect your job, and affect your finances, and affect all aspects of your life,” says Rachael Brockway, one organizer.

The event continues to Wednesday, and organizers say it has plenty of slots available.

It's for teens in grades seven through twelve.

Registration is required by contacting Anita Wisecup or Rachael Brockway at awisecup@nuihc.com or rbrockway@nuihc.com
