WHAT WE DO
ADAP’s mission is to provide education and resources to promote wellness among teens and families in Weston. The nonprofit provides a monthly, confidential forum for high school students to discuss the challenges they face both in and outside of school, and issues relevant to overall wellness. The group is led by facilitator Tim Walsh, a recovery coach and former Executive Director of Newport Academy.
HOW WE DO THIS
The ADAP Youth Wellness Council provides approximately 25-30 Weston students (grades 9-12) with a safe and nonjudgmental environment to discuss the challenges they face in high school, and to learn about the risks of alcohol and substance misuse. In addition, YWC members may mentor younger students, become peer leaders, and help with ADAP’s awareness programs in the Weston schools and in the community. The group meets monthly - October through May - on mutually convenient dates for group members, 7-9 PM, at the Weston Public Library Community Room. Since the group only meets once a month, a commitment to regular attendance is expected.
