PRESLEY LONG – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Youth in Action is An LRHS leadership club that focuses on raising drug awareness while promoting fun on campus.
Youth in Action does many fun events throughout the year such as participating in Students Above the Influence, Red Ribbon Week, and Exam Week Outreach. The club hangs posters around school to grab the attention of Mustangs during these events.
Members of the club even participated in the school carnival where they made and distributed stress balls to other LRHS students.
“Making the stress balls was a big hit among the students. It helped raise awareness in a fun way,” said club adviser and Exceptional Student Education teacher Heather Kasper.
No applications or fees are needed, and anyone can join.
