Celebrate Red Ribbon Week to Support Your Teen Employees

 

As much as it’s essential for adult employees to be drug-free, but teen employees should also follow suit. This year, the Red Ribbon Week theme is “Life is Your Journey, Travel Drug Free.” Journeying drug-free through your teen and young adult years is essential to future success in being a drug-free adult. Red Ribbon Week is an important effort of pushing back against America’s drug epidemic, starting with young people.

Take the Pledge and Support Employees

Red Ribbon Week isn’t just focused on getting kids to stay away from drugs. It’s also designed for adults to provide support to teens and stay drug-free in order to set a good example.

The Pledge

Redribbon.org has laid out some guidelines for adults to follow that will help them encourage kids and teens to stay drug-free:

  • Parents and citizens will work with our children and the children in our lives to help them understand the dangers of drug abuse.
  • We will lay out a clear set of rules for our young people about avoiding drugs.
  • We will set an example for our children by staying away from illegal drugs and not taking medicine without a prescription.
  • We will carefully monitor our children’s activities and enforce appropriate consequences so that our rules are followed.
  • We will guide family and friends to help keep children safe from drug and alcohol abuse.

Supporting Teen Employees

Show your support by participating in Red Ribbon Week this October. The week will run from October 23-31st. Parents who regularly talk to their teens about drugs and the dangers of drug use are 42% less likely to use than those who don’t. Sometimes teens listen more to trusted adults, such as an employer, rather than their parents. If you work with teens and young adults, discuss the importance of being drug-free to make an effort in starting to bring down the teen drug and alcohol abuse rates. Teens don’t always want to heed their parents and teachers so, if you are an employer, do what you can to create a drug-free future for America.
