Remember how simple life was when you were a kid? Maybe riding bikes, playing kick the can with neighborhood kids, or family game night. It’s not like that any more. Kids face the constant barrage of messages that drugs are safe; they face peer pressures of being offered substances by their peers; social media has thrown a whole other layer of pressure to constantly stay connected and measure up to others. All these things increase depression and anxiety and kids look for ways to cope, oftentimes in negative and unhealthy ways.
Youth Connections is a coalition of partners who are concerned about our kids’ health and well-being. We know that if they’re involved in positive activities they’re not involved in negative ones. We know that educating parents and the community about ways to support our youth is in investment in all of our futures. Join us! Donations help provide fun and safe activities; it gets resources into the hands of parents; it helps educate kids about not only the dangers of drugs, but gives them skills to make healthy choices. Your donation will do this! Can you help a child reach their full potential?
