$20 gift card given to all participants!!!The TAB is a group of local High School Teens in grades 9-12 who come together for a substance free evening.
TAB was created to provide our area youth with a voice regarding substance use and the general health of the young people in our region. These Friday night events are their vision for providing a substance free opportunity for fun and fellowship. TAB meets for dinner, discussion, projects, field trips, and guest speakers.
TAB meetings are directed by Joyce Sixsmith, MA, LADC, Substance Abuse Counselor/Prevention Specialist. Joyce is President of the RAM Council Foundation, Inc., with membership of nearly 100 New Canaan, CT teens committed to substance-free living.
April 5th will start with food and then an on-line based prescription drug learning module. After, there will be further discussion on the Substance Use the participants see within their worlds.
All participants will receive a $20 gift card.
The voices of our youth are incredibly important to HVCASA to help create a whole life span perspective on substance abuse and mental health, as well as inform our Community Needs Assessment.
