Mayor Broome Announces Partnership to Launch Total Teen Takeover Program

Baton Rouge, La. – July 30, 2020 – Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome and Healthy Blue, in collaboration with The Safety Place and the Big Buddy Program, are hosting Total Teen Takeover 2020 (TTT) next week. Baton Rouge youth agencies and business partners are collaborating to provide a myriad of experiences designed to help attendees live a healthy and safe life. The online community event for teenagers will be held Saturday, August 8, 2020, from noon to 3:30 p.m.

One highly anticipated addition to TTT is a performance by National Hip Hop Artist Dee-1, who will also have a one-on-one conversation with Mayor Broome regarding issues facing teens in 2020.

“COVID-19 has caused us to reimagine how we engage and empower our youth in the absence of in-person programs,” said Mayor Broome. “Our youth programming partners continue to demonstrate their commitment to designing a robust digital experience that not only engages high school students but also creates a foundation of skills to prepare them for their future and beyond.”

TTT will focus on the mental health of our youth in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Partners will provide information about resources youth can access to help them achieve healthy, safe, and productive lives.

“Healthy Blue is proud to partner with local area agencies and businesses to ensure the youth of our community remain connected during these uncertain times,” said Aaron Lambert, plan president, Healthy Blue. “We continue to provide our community with resources that promote health and wellness and enable emotional and social support. These efforts are part of Healthy Blue’s coordinated response to COVID-19 for members, local community organizations, healthcare workers, and frontline responders.”

The first 100 registrants will receive a special “Quaranteen” kit, a pre-mailed box of event essentials, snacks, and various TTT items.

Due to COVID-19, the program will utilize a virtual platform to deliver programming to the community. Interested youth and parents should register for this FREE event at www.totalteentakeover.org.
