“YOU MUST CHASE YOUR RECOVERY AS YOU DID YOUR ADDICTION”
In the local community there is a serious issue of teenage alcohol & substance abuse. Through CARP, TTC will target youth in the beginning stages of substance abuse to head off the issue before they are bound to it for years and have a harder time breaking free from their addictions.
The program will be for youth ages 10 to 25 years old. TTC will work with the local foster care system, schools and social service organizations in the community to find youth in need of this service. The program will be about 10 weeks in length, with regularly scheduled activities for alumni to keep them connected with resources and counselors to help them maintain freedom from their addictions. Building topics to be covered will include, but are not limited to: Teenage drinking, evils & struggles of alcoholism, consequences of substance Abuse (financial, relational, vocational, educational consequences), how to break the addiction, how to Live an addiction-free life. Relationship building will help participants build rapport with one another and be encouraged to open up and find mutual support for staying away from addictions. TTC will also have volunteer counselors and ministers on hand to talk with the youth and counsel them in an informal, non-stressful environment. A yearly TTC rewards program will be held to celebrate CARP graduates. CARP will also include regularly scheduled off-site activities to encourage youth to find other more useful, yet enjoyable, uses for their time. These outings will be a reward for successfully completing CARP and staying drug and alcohol free. This will give them an incentive to complete CARP; the activities will also provide opportunities for them to make wise choices about how to spend their time.
In order to build a bridge between the parents and their children in in the community, I would put on trips to Disney on Ice show, Circus, Concerts, Bowling, youth rap sessions on morals. One of my main goals is to put on a trip for the parents with their children to Walt Disney World. This trip would get people out of there environment, give them a change to see something other than their problems for a moment, bond with their children. The children will see their parent in a different way, make memories that would last for a lifetime, and put a smile on their faces. By using these positive activities through community outreach we will strengthen the community, build trust in our youth, encourage the parents, build role models, and keep our children from negative behaviors and activities. With your help partnering with us with a grant we could make a huge change in the people’s lives in the community.
