A group of Kitimat youths will be better prepared to face the hard choices in life following a graduation of a different kind.
The group of nearly 20 received their certificates after having completed the DARE program (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) offered by Kitimat RCMP’s Const. Rebekah Draht.
“The course teaches young people about communicating, how to handle stress and the effects of drugs and alcohol on the body. We do everything from skits to interactive games,” said Draht.
“The detachment is very happy with the program as it builds good police relationships in the schools and we have had very positive feedback from it.”
The course was run over two weeks at Kitamaat Village, Kildala and Nechako, Monday to Friday.
