(Binghamton, NY) More than 500 middle and high school students from 14 different school districts throughout Broome, Tioga and Chenango counties came together on Tuesday for YES! Ignites, where they learned role modeling, leadership and public speaking techniques. Students will use these skills as they participate in the peer leadership program YES! LEADS.
YES! Safe Choices for Kids is a partnership between Senator Tom Libous and Lourdes Hospital. YES! works to help kids in our area learn skills they need to resist using alcohol and drugs. YES! also provides parents with useful tips and fun activities they can use as starting points in talking about substance abuse with their kids.
Senator Libous, who developed YES!, said, “I’m very excited to kick-off another successful year of YES! LEADS. These are great kids who are committed to being leaders and improving our community. Today’s training will give these YES! LEADers skills they can use in classrooms later this year as role models who’ve chosen to live a drug-free life.”
YES! LEADers will organize dozens of group presentations for elementary school students, and sponsor poster contests, family movie nights and other school and community events.
By the end of the school year, YES! LEADers will show more than 6,000 elementary school students across three counties practical ways they can resist using alcohol and drugs.
“YES Ignites provides YES! LEADers with an important foundation,” said Windsor High School YES! LEADS Advisor Melissa Vanderpool. “For the rest of the year we’ll continue to build on the leadership and presentations skills that they learned. They work hard to put together presentations that will have a positive influence on elementary students. Not only are they building great leadership skills, they’re providing younger students with a drug-free role model. They’re really making a difference in our community.”
Attending Tuesday’s training were students from Afton, Bainbridge-Guilford, Chenango Valley, Maine-Endwell, Norwich, Owego-Apalachin, Seton Catholic, Susquehanna Valley, Tioga Central, Union-Endicott, Vestal, Waverly and Windsor school districts.
