SafeTeen New Mexico is a youth driven non-profit organization. We partner with both public and private entities to fund and create in school programs as well as social issue documentaries and campaigns that educate teens, parents and educators about critical issues facing youth. Major topics of interest for the Safeteen organization include: distracted driving, drinking, drug abuse, date violence, body image, and mental health. SafeTeen’s vision is to create awareness in order to facilitate healthy decision making. Students, parents, community leaders and schools work with SafeTeen to create our programs. The SafeTeen organization exists to help youth make healthy decisions and to prevent dangerous behavior.
This Month’s focus is on us! We have exciting news: recently at the Rocky Mountain Emmy Awards presentation in Phoenix, two more Safeteen produced documentaries won the coveted Emmy Award. Everyone’ Business: Protecting Our Children and Pregnant: Preventing Teen Pregnancy were each named winners in the Community Affairs/ Special Program category by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Both were co-produced in 2015 by Christopher Productions and Safeteen New Mexico. With these latest Emmy’s added to the total, Safeteen and CP now have a baker’s dozen (13) Emmy’s attached to our catalogue of social issue documentaries that are available for purchase on our website.
