Enfield Teens Create "Teens Who Think, Don't Drink" Campaign

Hartford Courant (Enfield, CT) April 21, 2011

"The Enfield Together Coalition (ETC), a community coalition committed to preventing and reducing underage drinking, in partnership with the Enfield Youth Council (EYC) is launching a campaign to encourage teens to stay alcohol free. Designed by Enfield teens, the campaign slogan, 'Teens Who Think, Don't Drink,' is being launched as part of April's National Alcohol Awareness Month and will be used during prom and graduation seasons.
'The slogan the teens came up with is right on point and the response to it has been fantastic,' stated Jean Haughey, director, Town of Enfield Youth Services. 'When teens take the initiative to reach out to their peers with a positive message about making smart choices, there is a much greater likelihood that the message will get through. It's wonderful to see our young people taking a leadership role in the community.'" Read More
