Youths in the News
Joining the UPC Youth Council is extremely important. Hear what YC members are saying...
I feel that alcohol and drugs are becoming too prominent in today's society, and the UPC Youth Council can help the youth make better and more careful decisions.
I think that it is a very good idea to have an organization against underage use of drugs and alcohol because it is an issue in today's society, and I think that an organization could really help to inform and protect people from drugs and alcohol.
I think this is a great cause and would love to be involved in any way that I can.
I like the idea of teens reaching out to other teens because we can all relate to one another.
I would like to help prevent underage drinking and drug usage because I feel that many teens don't realize the true danger of it. Due to peer pressure and cultural trends, I feel that teen views on drinking might be blurred. I would like to help spread the reality of it.
I completely support drug and alcohol prevention. I believe that when a group of young people work together for a unified cause the effect will be much greater.
