Drug & Awareness Prevention
Students gain a thorough understanding of the short-term and long term health impact of the most common abused substances. We have partnered with many businesses throughout Charlotte, NC with a similar goal of being committed to improve youth outlook and decision making skills when dealing life challenges.
Focus on delivering a message that using drugs won’t help you escape your problems it will only create more problems. Our goal is to make sure that the youth understand the health risks associated with the use of legal and illegal drugs. Step up to leadership focuses on educating about the different types of drugs such as Inhalants, Prescription, Steroids, Synthetic drug and nonprescription drugs and analyzing the causes and effects of drug use.
Step Up to Leadership will also discuss how Marijuana affects users – short-term effects of and advocate against the use of the drug. SUTL discusses how Marijuana use causes problems with memory, learning, distorted perception, difficulty in thinking, problem-solving and loss of coordination
Step Up To Leadership encourages our participants to pursue their goals and follow through to see them come true. These are 3 things we implement in our youth:
Write down your goals
Create a powerful belief system
Invest in yourself
