Results from the 2022 Parent Survey and the 2022 Hidden in Plain Sight program will be presented. Participants will also engage in community action planning through panel discussions following the presentations.
Hidden in Plain Sight is a two-hour workshop where parents, guardians, or trusted adults can learn about risky youth behaviors through a teen bedroom simulation; the power of positive parenting and some take-home techniques; and what the community has to offer in terms of risk and protective factors for our young people. A workshop was held in each school district.
The online parent survey invited parents to share their thoughts and perceptions on youth alcohol use and its prevalence in our community.
