The pervasive drug and alcohol culture among teens poses many dilemmas for our kids. In order to be better prepared to work through these problems during middle school and beyond, parents and kids need to talk. 

Join faciltators extraordinaire - John Williams, Director of Youth Services for The Oak Park and River Forest Township, and Margo Bristow, addictions counselor - for a fun and engaging conversation, helping kids and parents learn how to navigate the drug and alcohol concerns in our community. 

IMP.A.C.T and District 9 invites all middle school students and their parents and caregivers to this informative, must-attend Parent/Student Cafe on February 15th at 7 p.m. at Brooks Middle School.

Reservations are requested by RSVP at
