Teens Peddle Yard Signs to Promote Abstinence (8/04)

 How do you draw attention for abstinence in Milwaukee? A group of creative teens had an idea: yard signs! With signs proclaiming the benefits of saving sex for marriage, teens aged 12-18 took to the streets sharing their message door to door, asking residents if they could display the signs in their yards. The teens also handed out brochures and a fact sheet sharing the ten best reasons to wait before having sex. The ambitious teens were associated with the Opportunities Industrialization Center of Greater Milwaukee. Nearly 700 signs are still available for placement.
