The vision of the WCSAPC is to educate youth on how to stay drug and alcohol free; to educate parents on how to keep their youth drug and alcohol free; to work in conjunction with the community to create an environment where substance abuse is no longer the norm or an accepted behavior; to provide options and alternative activities that promote healthy lifestyle decisions; and to educate youth on quality of life issues pertaining to substance abuse and alcohol awareness.
This event will be broadcast live on WJOL (1340AM radio) by newscaster Kevin Kollins. If you can’t make the event, tune in between 3pm and 6pm. Kevin will be interviewing the Sheriff and several of the All-Star guest speakers!
