ASAP for youth was introduced to several schools last May/June with a letter and a video created by several students. Very soon, we will download the video on GlobalGiving. Students did the filming, some editing and interviews as well. We believe that kids should be involved in the projects by researching, and learning.  Getting involved with the community by participating as much as possible with the organization: kids helping kids. Our next step will be contacting the schools and do a follow up on the letter sent in May and June to schedule the symposiums for this coming school year. Our voluntters (students) will keep on working on the web page as well. A short version of the video will be included in the web page.  

We will also encourage our volunteers to create clubs at their schools for the prevention of alcohol among kids and teens. The clubs will be part of ASAP for youth, standing together and we will support them and guide them. Our main goal is for kids TO PARTICIPATE! 

 

STANDING TOGETHER, ONE DEED AT A TIME

ASAP for youth is preparaging for its first project: symposiums to educate on alcohol prevention .Our project started few months ago with the idea to educate parents and kids about the consequences on alcohol dependency, use and abuse. 

 ASAP consists of a group of parents and school students who are volunteering. We are working together with FLORIDA INTERNACIONAL UNIVERSITY-FIU BRIDGE to spread awareness on underage drinking. We are working towards  having future Symposiums with guest panelists such as police chiefs, doctors from ER, psychologists, experts in the field and special guests with inspirational stories.

  We are inviting schools in the community to host these symposiums. Our goal is to educate our community and bring the Symposiums to other cities and also to other countries where our foundation has worked a lot in the past (Nicaragua).

  We have received enthusiasm from many parents and kids in the community about our project. Alcohol abuse among teens is growing and  we need to get together and work hard to prevent it.
