Keeping Current program available virtually

Keeping Current is an interactive program designed to empower and equip adults with the tools necessary to prevent teen substance abuse. The program features teaching tools on how to communicate effectively with youth and will provide education on the current substance use trends in youth today.

As a result of COVID-19, the format of the class is changing. The program will be available virtually on two separate occasions. The class will focus on youth e-cigarette use and is recommended for any adult who is around youth, such as parents, teachers, youth pastors, caring adults and community members.

Two options to participate virtually are:

– Monday, July 13, 2020, 7 to 8 p.m. Participants can participate by going to the following link at the time of the program: Join Zoom Meeting: https://zoom.us/j/97731020400 Meeting ID: 977 3102 0400
