Summer Fun Program

Free Summer Program

Our goal is to help prevent children from the use of drugs and alcohol. If they are involved in other activities, they are less likely to be influenced to use these products.

 

The goal of our Summer FUN-tastic Activities is to help children get involved in the community and to have activities to do over the summer.

To prevent a problem before it starts, identify factors that increase or decrease the likelihood of the problem. Then reduce the risk factors and increase the protective factors.
