6th Annual Substance Awareness Campaign
May 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The RVC Youth Council and the Rockville Centre Coalition for Youth, invite anyone from the community to participate in their 6th Annual Substance Awareness Campaign: “Step Up For Prevention.” This year’s campaign strives to create change in our community through the universal language of art. The project combines art and education to prevent and reduce youth substance use. Participants are asked to decorate a sneaker (which will be given to you), with any kind of substance prevention message you would like. It could be with words, drawings, crafts, a combination of each, etc. The message could be on substances in general, or specifically on alcohol, marijuana, drugs, etc. Some message ideas from previous campaigns included Life Takes You Higher, Above the Influence, Hugs not Drugs, Be Smart Don’t Start, Keep off the Grass, You Only Live Once, and much more.
The RVC Youth Council and the Rockville Centre Coalition for Youth will provide the sneakers and fabric markers and paints and some other creative art materials, but feel free to bring whatever you like and need to get your message across. We welcome the community to participate!
