Kids and Drugs: A Parents Guide on Oct 5 2013 at 9:30 am

I am writing to provide you with information about a pilot project running in the west end of Ottawa.  Kids and Drugs is originally an R.C.M.P. initiative that we have adopted and adapted for use in this area.  This 2 and a half hour seminar is for parents, teachers, guardians, aunts, uncles and grandparents etc, who may be interested in getting some skills that may make a difference in a child's life.

Please pass this message along to your members.  If you have a child in your life between ages 8 and 14 and are concerned that they are or may be exposed to drugs, you should attend the October 5th session of "Kids and Drugs: A Parent's Guide to Prevention" hosted by the Ottawa Police Service and the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre. This session will provide you with information on the current drug trends in Ottawa. You will also learn how to talk to young people about drugs, and how to develop assets and critical thinking in young people to help them make appropriate choices.

If interested, please register through the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre. Phone: 613-591-3686.  The session is Saturday, October 5th, 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and space is limited.

Thank you,
