“Bringing students and parents together to talk openly and honestly about the dangers of drugs is the most important goal of the Courage to Speak® Foundation, Empowering Youth to be Drug Free Family Night. By helping our students become outstanding anti-drug advocates and mentors for their friends and younger siblings, we hope to eradicate the problem of drug and alcohol use among young people across the country.”
Ginger Katz, CEO and Founder of the Courage to Speak® Foundation
