That's why Communities In Schools holds a strong commitment to helping organize and implement Red Ribbon Week Activities across all seven of the schools we serve.
In cooperation with The Partnership for Families Children and Youth, CIS provides important education material, programs and special events to help kids understand how drugs and alcohol negatively affect their health and can potentially steal their dreams of graduation and becoming successful adults.

Fatal Vision goggles.
Site Coordinators at each school designed bulletin boards to help educate all students about the different kinds of drugs and how each one affects their brain development and their health. Site coordinators also worked with the Partnership's youth development staff to hold events during lunch which included allowing students to try on Fatal Vision Goggles, which simulate the visual impairment of intoxication, so that students can see how alcohol affects their ability to drive and make decisions.
