Community forum to discuss youth alcohol and drug addiction scheduled for May 10
The community is invited to share their thoughts on tackling youth alcohol and substance use at a free dinner.
Dubois County CARES and Purdue Extension are hosting a Community Forum on Tuesday, May 10 from 6-8 p.m. at the Arnold F. Habig Community Center, 1301 St. Charles Street, Jasper.
The forum will include a buffet-style dinner. Although dinner is free, reservations are required by May 3. To confirm your attendance, go online to bit.ly/CARESforumor use the QR code to scan below.
The results of 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.
