Hawaiʻi Meth Project Hosts Meth Awareness Day at Kalama Intermediate
The Hawaiʻi Meth Project will observe National Meth Awareness Week at the Kalama Intermediate School campus this afternoon.
The event includes a series of interactive meth prevention lessons and a rally to educate students and raise awareness about the dangers of methamphetamine use.
Maui Managing Director, Keith Regan, will also be on hand to present the Hawaiʻi Meth Project with a proclamation on behalf of Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa.
The Hawaiʻi Meth Project is a non-profit organization that implements large-scale, research-based campaigns and community action programs to reduce methamphetamine use in the state.
Meth Awareness Week is observed nationwide from Nov. 30 to Dec. 5. “Raise the Volume” was envisioned by the Hawaiʻi Meth Project and selected by the national chapters as this year’s theme to encourage youth across the country to turn the spotlight back on the fight against methamphetamine use.
During the weeklong campaign, the Hawaii Meth Project’s Teen Advisory Council will host events on Kauaʻi, Oʻahu, Maui and Hawaiʻi Island. Organizers say the program is expected to reach thousands of teens in schools and communities statewide.
