Service Learning Works with the Sumner Anti-Drug Coalition

Service Learning Club officers from Volunteer State Community College traveled to Portland High School Thursday, August 2nd, to distribute pamphlets at registration promoting the Sumner County Anti-Drug Coalition’s ongoing campaign to eliminate the use of illegal drugs and alcohol in Sumner County.   The parent-targeted literature, Navigating The Teen Years: A Parent’s Handbook For Raising Healthy Teens,  states, “The common thread among teens who do well academically and socially, and stay healthy and drug free, is that they have close relationships with their parents.” Sumner County Anti-Drug Coalition is a Pioneer Partner collaborating with the Office of Career Placement, Cooperative Education, and Service Learning at Volunteer State Community College.  This community based collaborative continues to promote a healthy community and offers students and community members opportunities to engage in projects to that end.  For more information, please contact the Office of Career Placement, Cooperative Education, and Service Learning at Volunteer State Community College: Phone (615)230-3307 Website: www.volstate.edu/servicelearning .  If you would like to receive email updates regarding news and upcoming events for the Sumner County Anti-Drug campaign, contact the Sumner Anti-Drug Coalition.  You can visit their website at http://www.sumnercountyantidrug.org/.
