      Tuned In Be the Voice to Save a Life - Teen Event featuring Parachute

      Date: 05/20 Sunday

      Over the past two years, the community has been deeply affected by numerous teen suicides, and bullying has continued to plague schools. Many of people have lost close friends to these serious issues. In 2009, five students of the Palo Alto Unified School District committed suicide followed by several other incidents in neighboring cities, bringing the issue closer to home. Since these incidents, this "solution" to teen problems has become frighteningly more enticing. Just this last October, another student of Harker School in San Jose took her own life, traumatizing students, faculty, and the community. There is not a single high school student who is not connected to a friend who has at least considered suicide as a "solution" and to the reality that many peers are victimized each day.

      It is not enough to pull friends from the cliff's edge, but prevent them from feeling the need to consider such an option--take the cliff out of the picture, if you will. Thus, Tuned In is being presented and, of course, Parachute, to raise awareness and funds for Suicide Prevention and Anti-Bullying. Join in this important day and an amazing celebration of what everyone can do to affect change together.

      This is a teen-only event for individuals in 8th through 12th grade.
