SESSIONS: DRUG EDUCATION WORKSHOPS FOR YOUTH
SESSIONS is a drug education program designed to help young people develop the knowledge and skills they need to successfully navigate their way through a complex, drug-using world. SESSIONS workshops create a safe space for young people to have honest, thoughtful discussions about drugs and drug use. Facilitators use music, art, literature, and games to engage youth as they develop skills to make informed choices about their health and wellness.
