Making Positive Choices


Font size: [A] [A] [A]

Students from the Carbondale Area High School participated in the “My Life, My Choice” campaign to help empower students to be drug- and alcohol-free while promoting each individual’s need to make positive choices.

The student participants completed a video project where they discussed peer pressure and demonstrated through scenarios the steps to make the appropriate choices to resist substance abuse.

The video was shown to the seventh- through 12th-grade students and handouts detailing “Peer Pressure Resistance Steps” were provided to them to share with their parents/guardians.
