Youth Action Teams Take Message to GA Legislators

Youth Action Team with Senator Jack HillNine students from Bulloch County Schools took their drug and alcohol resistance message to Georgia's Capitol recently as part of Substance Abuse Prevention Day. The students met with Senator Jack Hill and shared about their youth action team's work in Bulloch County and the need for drug and alcohol prevention efforts statewide.

 

Youth action teams are part of the Bulloch Alcohol & Drug Council's services to the community and the school system. The teams help the Council plan and implement peer-focused drug and alcohol prevention and community service projects. Portal Middle High School, Southeast Bulloch Middle School, and William James Middle School each have a youth action team.  

 

It's the Bulloch Alcohol & Drug Council's mission to provide information and education about the harmful effects of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs on youth, as well as, provide referrals to treatment for those families adversely affected.
