Recently, the Chardon Community Action Team (CCAT) was a at the Chardon Family Science Day. CCAT is a group of parents, concerned residents of the Chardon area, and government officials who work to reduce alcohol, drugs, and tobacco use by the youth in the Chardon community.
On April 23rd CCAT participated in the Chardon Family Science Day, which was took place at the Chardon High School. Special this year CCAT was assisted by Chardon Middle School Junior Teen Institute, which is a group of sixth to eighth graders who choose to live a life free of drugs and alcohol and promote a healthy community. Both groups offered a hands-on museum that required youth and their parents to use a sensory approach to learning about the cause, effects, and consequences of substance abuse.
“The Chardon Community Action Team was delighted to be able to take part in Chardon Family Science Day,” said Vice President Lynn Kempf. “The Chardon Family Science Day offered the opportunity for CCAT and JTI to educate families of the dangers of substance abuse.”
