Birmingham, AL– The Addiction Prevention Coalition, a local agency focused on preventing youth drug abuse through peer-led programs in high schools, announced today that they will host a service day at Aletheia House Avondale location on January 20th, 2014.
The event will begin at 9:00 am and end at 12:00 pm. Volunteers will rake leaves, build beds for a community garden and paint uplifting messages for residents living at the center.
Addiction Prevention Coalition encourages young people to get involved in the fight against addiction. Events on school holidays allow teens to use their free time to make a positive impact in their community.
“Between sports and other after school activities, teens have limited time available for volunteer work. Events on school holidays allow more young people to get involved,” said Renee N. Smith, APC Prevention Coordinator. “In order, to cultivate a culture of service and leadership we believe that teens should be given the opportunity to lead.”
Leading the effort to eliminate addiction in Central Alabama, the Addiction Prevention Coalition strives to prevent drug abuse by providing local youth with peer-led programs in conjunction with local high schools. APC makes every effort to provide support and create effective, culture changing community awareness through partnerships with local organizations. www.addictionpreventioncoalition.org
