Red Ribbon 2018

Click here to register for a 2018 Red Ribbon training.

Red Ribbon Week is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in America, reaching millions of students each year during the last week of October. By wearing red ribbons and participating in community anti-drug events, young people pledge to live a drug-free life and pay tribute to DEA Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena (1947-1985).


What is Red Ribbon Training?

  • Free substance use awareness training for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students in the greater St. Louis area who have demonstrated leadership potential. Trainings last from 8:15 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. – for most students, a full school day.
  • Engaging, interactive sessions that teach students how to create their own Red Ribbon school activities. The workshops are led by local prevention professionals who are committed to promoting healthy lifestyles for youth.
  • An opportunity for school sponsors to receive Red Ribbon planning resources – project start-up kits and other materials to help schools coordinate and promote anti-drug events in their community.

  


Breakout Sessions: To Educate and Share

These sessions keep students in the know with the latest facts on each topic and teach practical, hands-on techniques for sharing this information at their schools. Breakout sessions will cover alcohol, marijuana, prescription drug safety and other prevention issues that are trending in local communities today.

School groups will be sub-divided so that each school represented will attend as many breakout sessions as possible.  Each school group will receive training in best practices for effectively sharing the information learned with their schools and communities during National Red Ribbon Week in October. We recommend one adult accompany each subdivided school group.
