The video address the Facts, Lies and Costs of addiction. Intertwined in this dynamic video presentation students will hear speakers share personal stories of their introduction to drugs and the destructive journey it lead them on. These speakers are young people who have walked in the students’ shoes and are able to make a relevant and impacting connection. Stay Sharp is endeavoring to reach as many teens across the nation as possible. The negative destructive voices that communicate the wrong way to live are speaking loudly, repeatedly and clearly to the hearts and minds of this generation. We must communicate hope and truth and show them the right way.
Stay Sharp was created to address youth in a variety of settings, from a private or public school assembly or classroom to a church youth group, large or small group, the possibilities are unlimited. Presenters can work with parents, educators, youth pastors and other leaders to address the specific problem issues of your community. It is presented free of charge as an outreach of Teen Challenge International.
Presenters are not counselors or psychologists. Rather, they are simply individuals who have struggled with substance addiction, who now desire to share their stories about their choices and recovery.
