The Roscommon County Community Foundation’s Youth Advisory Council (YAC) hosted David Core, DP-C of the Grace Center on February 4th at Houghton Lake Community Education. Core spoke to students about substance abuse and sobriety, a topic that ranked high on the results of the youth needs assessment survey taken last fall.
Feedback from students on the guest speaker has been positive, with YAC members agreeing that the material was pertinent to our community and today’s youth. Students learned warning signs of addiction, as well as options to get help for themselves or for others.
Each month, different topics, such as sobriety, suicide awareness, and youth philanthropy, will be presented. If you are an 8th-12th grade student at any of the 5 schools in the county and are interested in joining YAC, or even attending one of these meetings, you may speak with your school’s YAC advisor or contact RCCF for more information.
