PARENT SUMMER SERIES | June 8 (internet safety) and July 6 (substance abuse): 6:30-7:30 p.m. Part of the Teen Summer Series, these two parent/guardian/adult-only sessions are open to any adult who interacts with teens, not just parents - and not just those whose teens are registered for the summer program. These courses are designed to help parents understand the daily challenges faced by their kids. Moreover, they will be informed about the signs of potential problems before they occur. Presenters must have completed training at notMYkid, where they consistently work with local law enforcement agencies (police and FBI) to update and improve the presentations based on current trends. Sessions with parent and faculty groups last one hour with ample time for questions. Attendees at every parent substance abuse program leave with a complimentary home drug testing kit provided by First Check and a personalized family prevention plan.

July 6, 6:30-7:30 p.m.: Substance Abuse | Register to attend. >>
