Youth Jam 2014 To Raise Suicide, Bullying Awareness

Bernalillo County

Bernalillo County is hosting an event Saturday afternoon to educate young people about suicide, bullying and other youth issues.

All ages are welcome at Youth Jam 2014 at Warehouse 508 from 2-6 p.m.  The County’s Analisa Montoya says the event will highlight over 40 types of resources for young folks - such as Agora, a crisis call center.

Montoya says kids that come will also get to have some fun, “It’s a safe place where you can come and explore and figure out what kinds of cool things there are to do here in Albuquerque, and all the people that are willing to be those trusted adults for our youth.”

This event is open to all ages. It is free and will include food, games, yoga, and open mic session.

The first Youth Jam was held in 2009 after an Albuquerque high school senior committed suicide.
