Youth as Resource members spread the message of Red Ribbon Week to their communities during the week of October 23-31. Each YAR group decorated their town with Red Ribbons to raise awareness and to remind the community to live drug free.

YAR members also spoke to both Halstead and Newton Middle school students in a total of 4 assemblies about the importance of making healthy decisions and getting involved with their school. YAR provided Middle School students with refusal skills cards to remind them of ways to say no and shared their natural highs (volleyball, baking, the mountains, forensics) and encourage the youth to discover their own “Natural High.”
