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.
Plans are underway for the 22nd Annual Idaho Prevention and Support Conference scheduled for April 9 & 10, 2015 in Sun Valley. The conference is the annual professional development centerpiece focused on innovation, best practices, collective problem-solving and motivation to most effectively address youth risk behaviors, foster optimal health and academic success for Idaho students.
