CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, July 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On July 13th, The Way to Happiness Association (TWTH) Tampa Bay opened its doors during the quarterly Clearwater Downtown Block Party and invited visitors to tour the center and celebrate its 4-year Anniversary of working to reverse trends that plague local communities. Since its opening in July 2015, TWTH center in downtown Clearwater has gotten over 1,300 volunteers to distribute over 475,000 copies of The Way to Happiness booklet to schools, after-school programs, mentors, educators and parents throughout the area. The booklet is a non-religious moral guide to better living. Over 780 individuals and groups have partnered with the association to help the community.
“Basic moral values are important in life; they form the building block of communities and unite citizens, no matter their ethnic background, color, or creed,” said Tanja Cranton, the Executive Director of TWTH Association Tampa Bay. TWTH Association pointed to the increase in bullying as a sign that respect needs to be taught to children. Bullying statistics on www.stopbullying.gov reveal that 28% of U.S. students in grades 6–12 experienced bullying and 70.6% of young people say they have seen bullying in their schools. Also a 2013-2017 Community Survey found that the overall divorce rate in Florida is 12.9% compared to the US national divorce rate of 10.9%. In Tampa Bay, almost 300,000 people went through a divorce last year.
