“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.”
