Participants will discover how using alcohol, tobacco and other drugs can damage their growing brains and bodies. This class is centered around interactive activities that focus on “showing and not telling” kids how their brains are affected by substance use. Real life scenarios help students analyze how a brain impacted by substances affects their actions and decision making skills. Students will conclude the session with role-play activities focused on communication and refusal skills.
