The Campaign

Talk Now Talk Often AK is a statewide effort developed by parents and caregivers like you to help increase conversations with teens around healthy relationships. Domestic violence and sexual assault in Alaska rank among the highest in the country, and many of the behaviors develop in adolescence. As parents you have a unique opportunity to connect with your kids and begin fostering healthy relationship conversations and skills that can be carried into adulthood.

Conversation Cards

Are you a parent of a teen? Do you have a teen in your life that looks to you for support and guidance? The more resources you have to help communicate, the better prepared you both are for the ups and downs of adolescence. While talking with teens may not always be easy, most parents agree that it is important to have these conversations. The cards below focus on strengthening relationships and connections between youth and adults.
