Vaping, Juuling and E-Cigarettes – What You Don’t Know Can Hurt Your Kids

Thursday, January 18, 2018 at 7 pm
Horace Greeley High School Auditorium

While our teens are well versed in vaping lingo, many are not well educated on the health risks those devices present. There is a further knowledge gap between what our kids know and what we parents do. Join us on January 18 at 7 pm in the Horace Greeley Auditorium for an informative presentation about vaping featuring Robert Rhodes, HGHS Principal, Dr. Richard Stumacher, Chief of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Northern Westchester Hospital, Carolyn D’Agostino, HGHS Student Assistance Counselor and Robert Greenstein, Town of New Castle Supervisor. Presented in collaboration between NCUFY, the CCSD and Northern Westchester Hospital Center on January 18 at 7 pm in the Horace Greeley High School Auditorium.

Youth Volunteer Fair

First Congregational Church, 210 Orchard Ridge Road, Chappaqua

Did you know that community engagement is an important youth protective factor? Research shows that the risk for substance abuse and other adverse behaviors increases as the number of risk factors increases, and that protective factors may reduce the risk of youth engaging in substance use that can lead to substance abuse. Bring your student, grades 5 and up, for an opportunity to speak with representatives of many local organizations that have a variety of volunteer possibilities for youth. Refreshments will be served!
