|How do I get involved?
We will send you a memorandum of understanding
where we agree to support one another and to meet kids
where they are at, encouraging them to make good
decisions, and promote drug free communities. You send
it back in and we put your name up on the website.
What are we required to do?
Start talking & listening just like you already do! You
don't have to attend meetings, although you are most
welcome! You just have to continue to do what you do
so well... connect with your clients, especially young
people and parents.
Let them know you care about them, and encourage
them not to drink or do drugs, not to host underage them
in case you run across someone who needs a little more
help. You can help point them in the right direction.
Be sure to have your facts straight though! Don't pass
inaccurate information. Come here to our website and
look around...visit other links, and get to know the
KNOW YOUR FACTS!
Do you know the signs of drug abuse? Do you know the
dangers of underage drinking? Do you know the laws
regarding social hosting? If your client seems to need
help, do you know the local numbers to give them?
