The Chaldean Community Council

Youth Substance Abuse Prevention Program

At the Chaldean Community Council, we are dedicated to supporting the health and well-being of our youth. Recognizing the rising challenges posed by vaping, tobacco, and drug use among young individuals, we have established a comprehensive Youth Substance Abuse Prevention Program. This program aims to educate, empower, and support children and teenagers in making healthy choices and resisting the pressures of substance use. Key Components of the Program: 1. Educational Workshops: We conduct regular workshops in schools and community centers to educate youth about the dangers of vaping, tobacco, and drug use. These sessions include interactive activities, presentations by health professionals, and real-life stories from individuals affected by substance abuse. 2. Counseling Services: Our program offers confidential counseling services to children and teenagers who may be struggling with substance use or are at risk. Licensed counselors provide one-on-one support and guidance to help them overcome challenges and build resilience. 3. Peer Support Groups: We facilitate peer support groups where young people can share their experiences, support each other, and learn from peers who have successfully resisted or overcome substance abuse. 4. Parental Involvement: We believe that parents play a crucial role in preventing substance abuse. Our program includes informational sessions for parents, providing them with the tools and knowledge to support their children in making healthy choices. 5. Community Outreach: We engage the broader community in our efforts, working with local schools, healthcare providers, and law enforcement to create a supportive environment for youth. Community events and campaigns raise awareness and promote a unified stance against substance abuse.
