Alcohol awareness month: YoCo takes a stand

-A A +A

The Henry County CARE Team’s Youth Coalition, better known as YoCo, would like to announce that April is Alcohol Awareness Month.
This week we are hosting a Spirit Week at both Eminence and Henry County Middle and High Schools. Our goals for the week are to raise awareness of teen alcohol consumption, get students actively involved in making good decisions, and, of course, have a little fun.

We will be playing games, drawing names for prizes, educating students and hopefully – saving lives. More than 10 million youth, ages 12-20, in this country report they have consumed alcohol in the past thirty days. This week-long event is our chance to make a difference.

We strongly encourage students to participate with their school’s Alcohol Awareness Month activities. Let’s support and encourage each other toward a better future!
