VALDEZ YOUTH COALTION VIDEOS SEND MESSAGE THAT YOUTH CAN STAND UP AND SPEAK OUT
The Valdez Youth Coalition is a small group of students who have produced drug and alcohol awareness radio spots and worked with Gilson Middle School to develop a 40 minute presentation for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. Videos of two Valdez High School graduates were a part of the presentation. The group held a public viewing of the presentation, but has the two main videos online for those interested in watching. These videos are recommended for those in 5th grade and up. The Valdez Youth Coalition has received support from the Valdez Elks Lodge to put on a “Minute to Win It” event for Middle and High School students during Frosty Fever, has been awarded a United Way grant to continue educational pursuits and videos of their presentation will be used by the “Forget Me Not Mission” in Anchorage to show students in other areas around the state how to develop a presentation for their school.
