The first day of each month is TRUE BLUE Day when we encourage all Webster County residents to wear royal blue in support of a drug free community.
Some background information — Webster County KY-ASAP was funded in 2002 through the Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy. The key concept for KY-ASAP is changing policy around substance misuse. True Blue Drug Free Communities is in year 4 of the 5 year federal grant that promotes substance free living for all youth. The True Blue concept is around the notion that if youth are true to their family, faith, school, community, and/or future they will be less likely to experiment with substances. True Blue implemented Character Counts curriculum in all Webster County schools grades K-12 to better equip students to make positive choices and to be of good character.
Webster County KY-ASAP True Blue Drug Free Communities funds substance prevention and education programs in the local schools and community such as: Mini Teen Leadership Conference for 6th grade students, 5th grade Health Fair, Truth and Consequences for 8th grade students, Project Northland Slick Tracy for 6th graders, Community Town Hall meetings, various trainings/Lunch and Learns, supports law enforcement, supports treatment, hosts Chatter 4 Change podcast, and supports the True Blue Youth Crews in grades 4-6, 7-8, 9-12, and early college.
To learn more about the Webster County KY-ASAP True Blue Drug Free Communities Coalition contact our coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Webster County True Blue Youth Crew will be represented on the United Community Bank billboard near the Webster County High School during April and May. The billboard theme will be the Youth’s CELEBRATE FREE campaign encouraging their peers to celebrate prom and graduation season free of substances.
In Episode 15, crew members attend the local Chamber of Commerce meeting. While the crew is attending the meeting to speak about Chatter 4 Change, they spontaneously interview Chamber members.
