The choices we make now will impact our future. The systems and structures that we build, will be inherited by our youth and future leaders. As community members and advocates for Los Angeles County, what can “YOU” do to make a difference?
Change can start with you! Here are a few ways you can take action in your community:
Talk with your friends, neighbors and family about the issues. Share the research to help dispel myths and protect youth.
Youth who have access to alternative activities like sports and after-school programs are less likely to use drugs and alcohol. Support local organizations that provide a healthy forum for youth, or create fun, alcohol- and drug-free social activities for youth.
