Live in Real Life

About Live in Real Life
Riverton City’s award-winning Live in Real Life program was launched to combat the alarming trend of anxiety, depression and other mental, physical and emotional health challenges increasingly found amongst the teenage population. The program provides diverse educational opportunities focused on critical issues related to mental health, physical health, safety and other challenges that teens face on a regular basis. Events are hosted twice per year and are open to teenagers, parents and other interested individuals in the greater south Salt Lake County area. Live in Real Life events routinely attract hundreds of attendees. The event is co-sponsored by Jordan School District and Riverton High School.
