MILFORD – Community Action for Safe Teens will provide leadership training for high school students in August.

CAST is a committee of the Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley.

Training will be in the areas of:

Connecting.

Understanding their roles as part of a team.

Practicing real-life skills in communication and leadership.

The focus will be on:

The impact of lifestyle choices.

Substance abuse prevention.

Learning skills to positively confront behaviors of concern.

Learning skills to increase a positive school climate.

Encouraging their peers to make healthy choices.

There will be an advocacy training component to this initiative, in which youths will be trained in the ways they can successfully advocate for
policy and/or community change on the issues of illicit substance use.

The curriculum will follow the Life of an Athlete model –
students do not need to be athletes to attend.

The training will take place from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 11.

The program is limited to 40 participants. There is no cost to participate; however, registration is required.

Participants are expected to act as ambassadors of Community Action for Safe Teens in relation to special projects/activities, and support the Life of an Athlete and/or substance use prevention programs in their schools in 2014-15.
