Alcohol Social Hosting Campaigns
15.55% OF HARVEY COUNTY YOUTH 6TH-12TH GRADES REPORT HAVING HAD AN ALCOHOLIC DRINK WITHIN THE LAST 30 DAYS.
OF THAT PERCENTAGE, 50% REPORTED DRINKING AT THEIR OWN HOME AND 53.37% REPORTED DRINKING AT A FRIEND'S HOME.
Harvey County D-FY is working to change this norm within our community. Many parents supply alcohol at home because they think that their teens will drink regardless, so they would rather them supervise.
Is this the standard we want for our youth?
