The Bee Inspired Advisory Council invites community members to a FREE showing of the movie, “The Breakfast Club”. The event is scheduled for Monday June 19, 2017 at 7pm at the Webster Theater, located in Webster City.
“The Breakfast Club” is the story of high school students spending time in Saturday detention. The youth discard their differences to discuss situations that brought them together that day. Originally released in 1985, stars Anthony Michael Hall, Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, and Judd Nelson bring to life the characters and the pressures that youth found to be similar amongst their different social groups.
The mission of the Bee Inspired CAPP Program is to empower ALL youth to make healthy informed decisions through education and community awareness in Hamilton, Humboldt, and Wright Counties. This includes increasing youth and adult conversations. It is important for parents, caregivers, and other adults to be Askable, Build Bridges with youth by using teachable moments to talk about “tough topics”, and Continue to Learn ways to “bee approachable”. The Council felt that the film shines a light on similar issues that teens today are facing (i.e. cliques, bullying, substance use, mental health, sexual health, social and cultural barriers. The goal is for members of the community to come to the FREE movie; with parents/caregivers or other adults and youth attending together. From there, with the help of discussion guides and conversation starters, be encouraged to go home and have open dialogue on these various topics.
DISCLAIMER: This classic ‘80s movie was originally Rated R due to its mature themes, profanity, and sensitive content (i.e. substance use and sexual health topics). Therefore, the Council is leaving it up to the discretion of parents and/or caregivers on whether their youth attend the event. Youth under the age of 18 MUST attend with an adult. For those with concerns, below are resources and reviews on the film.
