Committee Main Goal: To partner with other prevention programs and businesses outside of Stevenson to work on projects that promote a substance-free mindset within our communities.
This committee is currently planning an event for February 10th that will host several prevention programs from other schools as well as our middle school programs for a "Night of Education". We will have several speakers talking about substance prevention legislation and how to the action in ones own communities, as well as talking about upcoming opportunities for for more cooperation between organizations. Each school will be sharing about their own events they have participated in, and how other schools can get inspiration for their own programs.
In the past, Community Outreach has participated in local Sticker Shock campaigns in order to prevent the purchase for underage drinkers by adults on prom night. As well, we have spread flyers about prescription pill drop off locations to local businesses and recreation centers, and have ran booths giving information about Catalyst and its mission at various events and celebrations in the community (i.e. Buffalo Grove Days, National Night Out, etc).
