Tualatin Together along with LEAP Youth Alliance will be hosting a "First Day Film
" watch party on Thursday May 11th in the Tualatin High School Commons. This is an important community event that we have included as part of our National Prevention Week, "A Celebration of Possibility," activities. We know that as adults, we have a responsibility to do everything we can to make sure our young people grow up to have healthy, strong futures. We believe that if we can support safe conversations around WHY youth choose to use substances to cope with their lives, we can turn down the boiling point of youth use. This film is best for students grades 6-12. Childcare will be offered.
6:00pm Doors open to food, drink and vendors
6:45pm The First Day Film Begins
7:45pm Discussion Groups
A post film conversation will be guided by Carrie Bates - Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, a trusted adult who is and expert in the topic of prevention and youth who seek to make their world a better place. You will have conversation guides as part of the watch party package for note taking and conversations beyond this event.
Investing your time watching 'The First Day Film' will be a fulfilling event and we are dedicated to giving you some comforts and resources to ensure that happens for you and the people you choose to watch with. The film is in English and with Spanish subtitles.
