Not My Kid

The challenges kids and families face today are complex and have the potential to devastate lives and derail futures.  It is extremely important to work together to protect the kids in our community.  The average age a child will first try drugs is 13. Studies indicate that people who reach 21 without engaging in destructive behaviors are likely to never do so, which is why we passionately educate about current trends, warning signs and the long-term impact of destructive behaviors.  We believe proactive prevention on the part of kids, families and communities is the answer to long-term success. http://www.notmykid.org/
