What would YOU do if you fear a friend or someone you know is making dangerous or destructive decisions? Upcounty Prevention Network is presenting a forum on Tuesday, November 13th from 7:30 to 9:00 pm at JPMS. This will be a conversation for students, parents, coaches, neighbors, teachers, youth leaders and anyone else who cares about helping! Representatives from medical and counseling professions, the police, and youth leaders from SADD will be available to help spark real conversation, not just lecture. Admission is free. We hope to see you there!
