About this event
As part of our committment to mentoring the youth, and empowering the vulnerable, we will be doing this series of online presentations and discussions.
NOT THE OLD BORING SCHOOL-STYLE PRESENTATION!
This is meant to be a fun, laid back interactive presentations where students are encouraged to share stories and ask questions givng them a chance to express themselves. Parents are welcome to sit-in. However, in some cases youngsters will feel more relaxed if the discussions were private allowing them to be open and honest with topics that aren't always easy addressing at home. This is left to the parents' discretion. However, the content of the discussions will be moderated so it does not cross the boundaries of what is deemed 'age appropriate'.
Bullet points covered in the presentation are as follows:
- What are illegal drugs.
- Common recreational drugs.
- Causes of drug abuse.
- The effects of drug addiction.
- How to avoid drug use.
- How to get help.
- Sources of information.
Questions posed may include:
- Describing experiences they've witnessed or been exposed to.
- Things they fear or are concerned about
- How they'd cope with hypothetical situations
