Drug abuse and addiction is definitely a major problem and continues to grow worse by the day. I would suggest brainstorming creative ways that you can reach and educate your peers about all the dangers and consequences of drug abuse. Consider putting together presentations for local clubs or classes to provide educational awareness as well as recruit possible team members for your project. There are plenty of older speakers on the issue, but as part of the youth, your classmates may be more receptive to your viewpoint and advice. Also, feel free to reach out to me or view my project page: "Victory Over Addiction" for more ideas.
As someone who has had the privilege of growing up in a house with two parents, I am greatly appreciative of you sharing your perspective and story. I felt incredibly moved by your passion and am glad to see people like yourself spearheading an issue that seems largely ignored. I understand that this project is still in the idea phase, but would love to hear more about the logistics and specifics of the activities and presentations at the meetings to empower the disadvantaged youth. I hope to talk with you more about your project in the future and commend your efforts thus far!
Hello Jasmine, I'd like to first start off by commending your efforts in the complex issue of homelessness. Your demonstrated understanding of the problem's complicated, interconnected nature is spot on. The need for a long term, self sustaining solution is critical for a lasting recovery, which is largely misunderstood by society, so I am glad to see others such as yourself that have a more thorough understanding of a proper solution. I saw you were interested in connecting with other organizations, and would love to talk with you further about collaborating on this issue. I am the founder of the nonprofit "Victory Over Addiction", and one of our main goals is to provide a post clinical, long-term sober home for self-sustaining recovering individuals that need a place to live. I'd also greatly appreciate if you gave my project feedback to further discuss our efforts, and encourage you to reach me at "VictoryOverAddictionNH@gmail.com".
