You are invited to the Stand Up! Change Teen Statistics Community Show at the Nighswander Junior Theater @ Annie Wittenmeyer, 2815 Eastern Ave., Davenport on Tuesday, October 23 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The QC Hearts and Minds Youth Workgroup of the Quad City Health Initiative is proud to be partnering with the Rock Island County Regional Office of Education and Scott County Kids to bring the Stand Up! Change Teen Statistics theater program to our local schools.

During the week of October 22nd, the Stand Up! cast will give multiple performances of its 55-minute live prevention theater program to high school students across our community. Presented by the R.Ed.I Arts and Education Foundation, the program provides information, hope and help for youth in managing issues they experience during adolescence.

Performances of Stand Up! provide a great opportunity for teens and adults to have open discussions about issues facing youth today. The Youth Workgroup hopes this program helps to identify and assist kids with mental and behavioral health concerns. We've arranged for a special performance of Stand Up! to be given for community members and other school personnel/high-school students who would also like to experience this fantastic program live.

We invite you to join us for the Stand Up! Change Teen Statistics Community Show at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 23rd in the Nighswander Junior Theater in Davenport. The performance is free.

Questions about the event may be directed to Nicole Carkner, Executive Director, Quad City Health Initiative at 563-421-2815. We acknowledge and thank the following sponsors who have provided financial support for this project including: Edgerton Women's Health Center, Quad City Bank & Trust, Rock Island County Juvenile Court Services, Scott County Regional Authority and United Way of the Quad Cities Area. We look forward to seeing you at the theater!
