Why PROJECT “WE CARE”?

Preventing teen drug and alcohol use starts with the family. In order to reduce the drug abuse and underage drinking among La Cueva High School Students, the La Cueva High School Families must band together to help change social norms around drug abuse and underage drinking in our community.
 
Young people who use drugs and alcohol are more likely to be victims of perpetrators of violence, engage in unplanned and unprotected sex, experience school failure or be seriously injured from driving or engaging in other risky behaviors while impaired.
 
Easy access and availability of drugs and alcohol make it difficult to keep young people out of harm’s way.
 
For more information contact the LCHS PTA through the LCHS web site.
