We have an exciting new campaign for “cool parents.”

Be involved. Be Influential. Be informed. THE NEW COOL PARENT.

Mission statement: “As cool parents, it is our mission to openly talk with our teens about substance use, provide a safe place for substance-free activities, and enable them with knowledge and confidence to make good choices.”

What is a cool parent?

  • Cool parents are Involved in their kids daily lives
  • Cool parents are a positive Influence
  • Cool parents are informed about their kids friends and the environments where their kids hang out

And most important:

  • Care about your kids by NOT providing them with alcohol, tobacco, marijuana or prescription drugs.

Join our new facebook group for parents called Cool Parents.
