Blog tackles teen drinking
Straight Up Ventura County has debuted a blog that features writing by and for youths and parents about underage and binge drinking and impaired driving.
The blog contains stories and statements from teens who know of other youths affected by drinking and offers tips to adults who want more information about underage and binge drinking.
The blog can be accessed at www.straightupvc.org/blog.
Straight Up's online resources are part of its "toolkit" to encourage discussion about teen issues. It offers workshops, youth leadership training, video resources and reality parties for parents.
Straight Up is a youth development project that promotes social change regarding underage and binge drinking through interactive performance, workshops, and development of community solutions to problems.
