Dover drug prevention program earns state agency’s endorsement
Prevention Coordinator Dana Mitchell said the program includes 65 local students in grades six through 12.
He said state officials are endorsing Youth to Youth as an innovative drug prevention program that could be used as a guide for other youth-based efforts in the state.
Members of Youth to Youth plan to make a formal announcement of the honor at their main training room in the McConnell Community Center, 30 St. Thomas St., today at 5 p.m.
“It’s not really winning an award — it’s a product of being evaluated by an expert panel,” Mitchell said.
In the next two years, the peer-oriented drug prevention program expanded to about 20 members and began spreading its message by presenting short skits and programs at local events.
