Prevention Week

High School Prevention Activities

As part of National Prevention Week, we had tables at our high schools to teach our peers about prevention. Together we interacted with our classmates and learned a lot from them as they learned from us. We kicked off the week with a ‘Mock Car Accident’ to give students an experience of the dangers of drinking, drugs and distracted driving. We also filled the school hallways with posters stating positive messages, and had students during all lunch waves write messages of hope for the future. Additionally, there was a mini resource fair and a 3-point basketball contest against teachers. The week ended with everyone wearing purple in unification of the message of prevention.
