Youth Services for October 2023

Drug Take Back Day

National Drug Take Back Day will be held on Saturday, October 28th from 10:00am-2:00pm at High Plains Community Center.  All unwanted/expired medications will be taken (including liquids and sharps).  Volunteers from the National Pharmacy Association will be on site to answer any questions, along with the Orange Police Department, BOWDAAC, and CERT.

Annual Regional Prevention Meeting

On September 20th, the Annual Regional Prevention Meeting was held with BOWDAAC, Milford Prevention Council, and the West Haven Prevention Council.  A year-in-review was presented, as well as the upcoming goals for this year.  In addition, each prevention council honored a volunteer that has gone above and beyond for their council.  BOWDAAC selected Ben Aviad, a senior at Amity High School, who serves on the joint BOW/Milford Youth Committee.  Ben has shown great passion for the work we do and always has ideas of what projects we could work on next.  He was an integral part of our Youth Problem Gambling Video project, helping to create the storyline and understanding how gambling affects youth.  He is eager to work on new projects for this school year and we can’t thank him enough for volunteering so much of his time.  Thank you, Ben!
