CADA Launches "Youth Committed” Campaign Encouraging Teens to be Substance Free


Committed Campaign BraceletsThe week of April 7 - 14, CADA will launch a new student-led campaign supporting teens committed to a healthy lifestyle by staying alcohol and drug free. The “Youth Committed” Campaign replaces “Free for the Weekend” and signifies a shift by CADA in engaging both teens and their parents in the fight against substance abuse.

Students in CADA’s Friday Night Live Club, a youth leadership program, came up with the “Committed” name and designed the wristbands, underwritten by Union Bank. Members of the group say wearing the wristbands represents, “that we don’t have to do drugs and alcohol to have fun.”

Student leaders will launch the campaign in local schools beginning April 7th and plan to distribute over 5,000 “Committed” bracelets to their peers. Youth-led interactive classroom presentations will engage hundreds of students in conversation about the risks associated with underage drinking and substance use. Lunch-time activities and pledging will highlight the benefits of committing to a healthy lifestyle. At the same time teens sign pledges committing to be drug and alcohol free, parents are also encouraged to participate in the “Committed” Campaign by signing a parent-pledge available here.

 

Be Committed and Join the Fun All Year!

 

Want to find out where there's free activities happening for teens the community? Follow us on Tumblr or Instagram, or like us on Facebook to get the latest info on what's happening around town.

 

Want to help make the campaign even more exciting?

If you have a free activity for teens you'd like us to publicize, or want to sponsor an activity for teens who take the "Youth Committed Pledge," please contact us.

For Parents:
The Most Important Conversation
You Can Have

 

Does it surprise you to know that parents are the most powerful influence in a child’s life — greater than peers, popular music, television, celebrities and the media?

 

Kids who consistently learn about the risks of drugs from their parents are 50% less likely to use drugs and alcohol than those who do not.

Talking to your kids about the risks of drugs and alcohol isn’t as hard as you think. CADA's Parent Resources page offers links to some great web sites that provide free, easy to use tools and tips to help you have ongoing conversations with your kids to keep them healthy and drug-free. We will also be publishing a Parent Newsletter with time sensitive information on the local teen party scene and other information parents need to know to keep their children safe and healthy. Click here to subscribe.

 

Santa Barbara Committed Parent Pledge

CADA and Santa Barbara Fighting Back are launching a new campaign, called Santa Barbara Committed, to engage the entire community in supporting teens to stay alcohol and drug free. As a parent, you can join the campaign by pledging to make your home a safe place where alcohol is not served at parties where teens are present. Join over 400 parents who have taken the pledge to date. Parents can also opt in to have their contact information published so that other parents who take the pledge can contact them about teen parties and gatherings. This directory will remain private and will be accessible only to others who have agreed to be included in the directory. Know where your teens are and stay in touch with the parents of their friends. Click here to take the pledge.

 


 

Thanks to Our Summit for Danny Climbers Returned from New Zealand! 


We'd like to express our gratitude to our team of 21 hikers from Santa Barbara, who have recently returned from their March trek in New Zealand.  The group, led by Bob and Patty Bryant, are hiking to raise money and awareness for the Daniel Bryant Youth & Family Center.   

This year’s International Summit for Danny was a huge success, raising over $75,000 to support the treatment programs at the center. CADA Board Member and former Channel 3 News Anchor, Debby Davison eloquently summarized their experience, “From the daily reading of notes from clients at the Daniel Bryant Center and the CADA staff, to the challenging hikes, to the magnificent landscapes to the warm hospitality of the Kiwis to the perfect weather and to the caring, attentive, knowledgeable guides, this was a trip of a lifetime.”

To learn more, see Debby Davison’s blog.

 


 

Highlights from the Amethyst Ball

 

Thanks to each of you who made this year’s 28th Annual Amethyst Ball such a huge success. It was a night of colorful celebration as guests donned black tie or formal Cuban attire for a "Havana Night in Paradise" at the Coral Casino. We are thrilled to report the event exceeded our fundraising goal of $300,000!

We invite you to view the videos from the program for the evening, highlighting honoree Debby Davison and the work of the Daniel Bryant Youth and Family Center.

Online Mentor Resource Center

The Fighting Back Mentor Program has launched an online resource center: www.mentor-center.org. This website offers mentors and others interested in the program with detailed information about how to become a mentor, or how to get involved in the program in other ways, like volunteering, donating, or helping to recruit mentors.

Topics cover every area of life — school, personal life, social life, health, substance abuse prevention, gang prevention, and more. It's also a great resource for parents! We hope you will visit the site, make use of the resources you'll find there and give us your feedback.

 

The Mentor Resource Center was made possible by a grant from The Towbes Foundation.
