SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Parents, guardians, teachers, family friends, and mentors are invited to join experts Kip Young and Milja Brecher-DeMuro at a special forum covering ways to reinforce what area middle-schoolers are being taught about substance abuse and addiction.
Mr. Young’s prevention education classes in area middle schools are a part of Acadia Family Center’s prevention education outreach. The center is an organization that provides individual and group counseling, prevention education and support for those struggling with addiction.
“We want people to hear from Kip himself what information he is sharing with the children and find out ways that they can continue to bring his positive, resiliency based message to their home,” said Ms. Brecher-DeMuro.
This program is free and is scheduled for two locations: the Hancock Community Center in Hancock on Thursday, May 24 from 6 to 8 p.m.; and in Southwest Harbor at Harbor House Community Center (Old Yellow School House) on Thursday, May 31 from 6 to 8 p.m. Pizza and refreshments will be served.
