A drug-free, youth leadership club for Clinton residents.
REACT stands for Reality Even Affects Clinton Teens.
REACT includes Clinton youth from grades 5-12. Eliot REACT meets one time per month, and Morgan meets twice per month in the evenings.
Advised and run by Partners in Community staff, in this program students will:
- Be challenged to make positive decisions and to avoid negative risk behaviors, and to influence their peers to do the same
- Participate in activities designed to identify and utilize their specific leadership strengths and abilities
- Have the opportunity to practice leadership in a variety of settings, including within REACT meetings, during REACT events, Clinton community events and boards, and on state boards and committees, if desired
- Learn the dangers of substance use and will participate in designing campaigns to influence their peers to avoid using drugs/alcohol and to handle stress with healthy coping strategies
- Practice positive communication skills to help the greater Clinton community understand teen trends in attitudes and behavior
