11th Annual Raymond Coalition for Youth Project Safeguard is AWESOME success!

Rick LaBell of the Raymond Police Department and LaBell Presentations opened the day for us.  With a message encouraging students to stay focused on their dreams and not let drugs and alcohol get in the way of their future and their goals.  As one student said “He was awesome!  He really inspired me.”

The day is designed to provide students with information to help them make Positive, Healthy Choices!  Research shows that risk taking and experimenting with substances such as tobacco, alcohol and marijuana often happens between seventh and eighth grade.   This conference is designed to be full of information to help teens know the dangers and possible long term effects of caving into the pressures to use any of these substances.

This year our high school and alumni Youth Action members ran two classes, Tar Wars a tobacco education and awareness class and the Dope Show – an interactive, informative game show with a focus on alcohol, marijuana and other drugs.

We also included a special forensics class offered by Detective Payne of the Raymond Police Department.  This was an excellent addition and very well received by those in attendance.

Three classes were offered for parents who attended and we would like to extend a special thank you to all of the parent who attended once again.   It is very encouraging to see parents taking time out of their busy schedules to learn more about how to be engaged, aware and involved in their students’ lives.We recognize that it is not possible for all parents to have the ability to attend the day so we have uploaded Parent resources information 2015

Words used to describe the day included: ‘Awesome’, ‘Excellent’, ‘Informative’ and ‘Fun’.  The day was complete success and we look forward to next year.  All sixth graders can mark their calendar for January 13, 2016.   A special thank you to the Seacoast School of Technology for being our host for the seventh year.  Thank you to our speakers, who teach our classes, who are also our great collaborative partners that have been developed over the years.
