Waycross-Ware County Community Members Invited to Visit Teen Maze

Waycross-Ware County community members are invited to experience the Ware County High School Teen Maze on Monday, March 13th from 5:30 – 6:30.  Visitors will have the opportunity to experience the maze and to see the work that has been done to ensure that our youth have been exposed to information that will lead them to healthy lifestyle choices that will increase their chances for success. Due to graphic content that may be upsettling, Teen Maze is not recommended for child-aged visitors.


9th grade students from Ware County High School will participate in the Maze on Tuesday, March 14th.  This year’s theme is “Life is an A-mazing Journey: You Hold the Key”.  Students will travel through a Maze of different islands and experience some life-changing situations as they get a dose of reality and see firsthand where the consequences of their life choices can lead them.


The goal of the Teen Maze is to increase the students’ understanding of personal responsibility and the importance of making positive life choices. Each island will be staffed by appropriate professionals who will present the information and discuss the consequences associated with that scenario.  The Maze starts with a short party scene skit, and from there it moves to a real life simulated crash scene as a result of the poor choices made at the party.  Teens then move into the Maze and on to the Islands of Drunk Driving, Legal,  Life and Loss, Leadership Development and Youth Development, Sexual Behavior, Social Behavior, Mental Health and Substance Abuse, Abusive Behavior, Careers, Evaluation and Graduation.   Call 912-816-5317 for more information.
