Salute to Teens 

Will you join us? April 25-May 1, 2021 has been declared as Salute to Teens week in the Quad-Cities, a program designed to help make teens feel good about themselves, raise self-esteem, and promote positive communication between their peers and/or adults.

Bethany for Children & Families’ Teen Pregnancy Prevention Advisory Committee celebrates Salute to Teens, encouraging businesses and private citizens of the Quad Cities area to join us in supporting our youth as they grow toward maturity. Teen depression, anxiety, and suicide has been on the rise due to the COVID pandemic and we must do more to help out those teens in our community. 


April 25-May 1, 2021 has been declared as Salute to Teens week in the Quad-Cities and through an upbeat, coordinated effort, all aspects of the community can join forces to let teens know that WE CARE and want to make a difference in their lives! Please feel free to contact us with questions at (309) 230-7908 or email Mary Ann McLeod at or Wendy Burrows at
