In Idaho, surveys indicate some youth binge drink in the sixth grade, and a few may even start earlier. Parent’s disapproval of youthful alcohol use is the key reason children choose not to drink. Get informed and involved. Don’t just talk to your kids; let your actions show them you really care. Keep up to date with local and state-wide organizations, campaigns, and events.
PLANNING GUIDE 2012
Date: September 24-28, 2012
GORDIEday: September 27
National Hazing Prevention week is an opportunity for campuses, schools, communities, organizations, and individuals to promote the prevention of hazing. It is observed during the last week of September each year or whenever it is most convenient in your calendar. For each group or person, the experience is their own, but the important thing is that we are doing something to prevent hazing!
HAZING IS: Any action taken or situation created intentionally: that causes embarrassment, harassment or ridicule, risks emotional and/or physical harm to members of an organization or team - whether new or not - and regardless of the person's willingness to participate.
