Mid-Missouri's Got Talent!
Welcome to a new school year! Here at CDFY we're gearing up to get our drug-free, healthy lifestyle message out to even more students. How can you help?
Some current and former Safety Kids performed in the United Way's Mid-Missouri's Got Talent Show on Sept 12. Keeping with the Annual Campaign's theme of Disney they sang A Drug Free World, their version of the classic Aladdin song A Whole New World. As you can see from the video, they rocked it!
The 2017-2018 Safety Kids begin their tour of Mid-MO Elementary Schools in October. Call 636-2411 or email to find out how you can help them spread their drug free message.

Parental Attitude Surveys
We know the majority of underage drinkers start at 13 (that's the 7th grade) and we know that those are the kids who are most likely to go on to abuse drugs. We went to JCPS's Middle School and High School back to school event this year and surveyed the parents there to learn what they thought about underage drinking.
You can see the full results HERE. But take a glimpse at the chart and table to the right. Parent's aren't OK with their kids drinking alcohol at 13! So what's happening? Where's the disconnect?
Join us at our next coalition meeting and tell us how to better tackle this issue!
