What We Have Done

2inspire Positive Thinking Campaign at Tuscarora Jr High
Implemented in Spring 2016
2inspire provides the opportunity for youth to create, develop, and implement positive messaging campaigns to send to their peers and communities that drugs and alcohol do not have to be part of their activities and that in fact, most teens are NOT drinking and doing drugs. The Juniata County Prevention Board is partnering with the TJHS Builder’s Club in this campaign.
Implemented in Spring 2016
The Community Outreach and Public Relations Workgroup of the JCPB developed this program to partner local churches with each elementary school in the Juniata County School District. The churches will be available to supply elementary schools with immediate, specific needs of their students such as winter coats, backpacks and personal hygiene items.
