Fox Lane High School Youth to Youth Group Presents Year End Wrap Up, Aspirations for the Future at Mt. Kisco Partner in Prevention Monthly Meeting
Graduating high school seniors from Fox Lane High School will be the featured guest speakers at the June 8, 2016 Partners In Prevention meeting at 7pm at Town Hall, 104 Main Street, Mount Kisco, NY.
Students will present “Youth to Youth 2016 Wrap-Up: Aspirations for the Future” and will tell why they joined Youth to Youth, discuss the challenges/successes of leading drug- & alcohol-free lifestyles, and how Y2Y positively impacts high school students. In addition the students will review club-sponsored 2015-2016 awareness activities and talk about the future of Youth to Youth. The students will also talk about the next chapters in their lives and their plans for the future.
“This is my favorite meeting of the year when we hear from the students who are directly impacted by our support. We admire each of them for living a drug- and alcohol-free lifestyle, and congratulate them on being such excellent role models. We wish each of the graduating seniors the best of luck in their future endeavors, and gain comfort in knowing they have the will to stay drug- and alcohol-free wherever their lives take them” said Nan Miller, PhD, LCSW, Mt. Kisco Partners In Prevention Coordinator.
The presentation is free and the public is invited. Parents, school administrators, community leaders and coalition members are encouraged to attend.
This is the last MKPIP meeting before the summer and before the graduating students go off to college or enter the workforce. The students were involved in many drug and alcohol prevention activities throughout the school year.
