THE IMPACT ON LIVES
For over 25 years AAIM has made a push in schools and at community events to highlight the problem of underage drinking, illicit drug use and dangerous driving decisions. AAIM speakers are well received at schools and before civic groups. AAIM presents pre-Prom prevention programs to over 50 area high schools every Spring and at Homecoming Season in the Fall.
AAIM’s Community Outreach Program has been developed to help parents to navigate through the teen years, and educate the community about the dangers of underage drinking. Parents have more power over the choices their children make than they may realize. Kids that learn from their parents about the dangers of underage drinking, illicit drugs, dangerous driving decisions and other risky behaviors are less likely to make poor choices. While many teens are making positive choices, parents can’t help but continually worry about the challenges and potential risks that teens face in their lives. Teachers and administrators have an important influence in the lives of their students. Help prevent underage drinking and work to change the environment that encourages risky alcohol and drug use in your community.
AAIM’s Community Outreach Program will provide you with expert advice designed to be used for both middle and high school students. Your participation will help to ensure your teen has a healthy lifestyle and a positive future.
