Winooski Youth Wellness & Substance Use Prevention Forum

Winooski Partnership for Prevention

In 2017, a quarter of Winooski High School students thought there was little to no risk from binge drinking every weekend and 50 percent of students thought there was little to no risk from regular marijuana use, which are both proven to negatively impact young people’s developing brains. Let’s join together as a community to discuss how we can ensure all students get the support they need to make healthy choices. There is a seat for everyone at the table.

The community forum will be held in the school cafeteria, from 6 PM to 8 PM.

Schedule

  • 6 PM - 6:30 PM: Free dinner from local restaurants
  • 6:30 PM - 8 PM: Presentation and break out sessions; child care will be available for children ages 5 - 11. Please RSVP ahead of time to 802 655 4565.

Translation services will also be available.

Winooski Partnership for Prevention is co-sponsoring the forum with the Chittenden County Opioid Alliance of the United Way of Northwest Vermont, City of Winooski and Winooski School District.
