For the last 1/2 a year I have been working with a small team to pull together a drug and alcohol awareness day for high schoolers in Unity, Saskatchewan. We’ve called it TTYL (Talking To Youth Live).
We began with the premise that fun could make things stick in your mind. And hands-on was always better than just being lectured. Add to that a random choice of those attending so that you are not goofing off with friends and this should work.
It means I’m off early to Unity, a bit more than an hour’s drive. I’ll need to be there by 8:00 in the morning. The day’s activity in Unity will finish around 2:30 or 3:00. Then I’ll head back as soon as a few things are cleaned up, watch our local high school team play a bit of football, then – after a suitable supper repast – head off to our church’s youth group. By 111:00 in the evening I should be back in my bed.
I’ll call this my youth day. I enjoy working with youth. I enjoy working with those who work with youth.
Should be an enjoyable day!!
