Becoming an "Askable Adult"
In January 2020 TTMP collaborated with the Sexual Assault Crisis team of Washington County to discuss what it means to be an "askable adult." Below are some resources to help us on our journey to become more "askable" with youth. You can click here to see the notes from the evening, and explore the resources below that were discussed.
Recommendations from the survey: Be an askable/supportive adult
- Ask young people what makes an askable/supportive adult and become one.
- Listen and be available.
- Ask youth about their concerns and offer support.
- Find and share information and resources with youth about their concerns including: drug and alcohol use, sexism, and gender identity and sexual orientation related concerns.
