BOARD OF DIRECTORS
We are located on the Central Coast of California.
We are a group of concerned individuals who see a need that is not being filled. Youth, as young as 8 years old, are already facing substance issues.
We are encouraging schools to implement a 7th and 8th substance prevention curriculum, and to involve parents and community. We are also creating social media videos and memes, offering presentations and working toward a dialogue with youth. Eventually, we hope to encourage schools to adopt the Michigan Model that teaches empowering youth with skills, self-esteem and positive decision-making--from kindergarten through high school.
POSAFY is currently developing a podcast: BrainStream, featuring segments on maintaining healthy brains.
POSAFY is also tasked with creating a Central Coast Alliance for Substance Free Youth.
Children who are educated on the dangers of substance have a far greater chance of making healthier choices when faced with the prospect of using substances. We CAN make a difference! In fact, we MUST make a difference.
