Life Skills Class for Students:
FREE and back by popular demand. HC DrugFree is providing a highly interactive skills-based program designed to promote positive health and personal development for youth in grades 6-9. (For slightly younger or older students, register and we will consider each request.) We encourage siblings and friends to take classes together. This program uses developmentally appropriate, collaborative learning strategies to help students achieve competency in the skills shown to help students resist substance use (tobacco, alcohol and other drugs), violence, and other high-risk behaviors. Taught by dedicated adults and older students sharing situations your student may face in high school, college, and beyond. The next session will be held this summer, Monday through Thursday July 18, 19, 20, 21, 25, 26, 27, 28 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. via Zoom.  Register at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LifeSkillsRegistration For more information, visit https://hcdrugfree.org/2022/05/free-life-skills-class-21-22-2/  High school and college students who are interested in assisting with the Life Skills classes can register at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LSVolunteer

Summer Internships for High School and College Students
HC DrugFree is looking for responsible summer interns. Gain experience in areas of interest with the flexibility of working virtually from anywhere. For example, some students may want to assist with and be positive role models for the middle school students in Life Skills classes to be held Monday through Thursday July 18 to 28 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. via Zoom. Experiences will be a good addition to a resume, college applications and future job interviews. High school students may receive service hours for their work. Depending on college policies, may receive credit. Interested students should go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HCDFIntern to provide contact information. All students will be contacted after completing the online form.
