Everett

Group fights teen drinking

Continue reading below

A new parents’ group has been formed in the city to help address under-age drinking. The Parents’ Action Committee of Everett will work with the Everett Community Health Partnership-Substance Abuse Coalition to raise awareness about under-age drinking and on strategies to prevent it. The coalition established the parents’ group through a recent grant it received from the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration. The new committee will be overseen by Everett parents Marci Marino, Maria Rugeles, and Simone Antunes. The group plans to start by recruiting middle school students’ parents to serve on focus groups that will discuss how to talk with children about under-age alcohol use and support them in making healthy choices. Those discussions will help guide the committee in creating social media campaigns on that subject. The committee will launch the campaign at George Keverian School and look to add other schools in the coming year.
