Indian Valley Education Foundation
Indian Valley Education Foundation's (IVEF) !NSPIRE Speaker Series: “Let’s Talk About Drugs. Raise Awareness & Save Lives, because it absolutely DOES happen here.” On Thursday, December 9th, 2021 beginning at 7:00 p.m., we come together as parents, educators, and concerned citizens to take part in an important discussion. The Indian Valley Education Foundation is pleased to welcome federal agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Philadelphia Division to learn more about how we can support our youth as they navigate unprecedented times. The availability of opiates, heroin, and methamphetamine right here in the Indian Valley is staggering. What can be considered as innocent experimentation with these substances often leads to lifelong substance use and abuse, and sadly, more often than not, death from overdose.

It’s not safe to assume our kids don’t have access to these drugs. It is also not safe to assume they will know what or how to handle situations in which they are faced with making a really difficult choice. It takes a commitment to educating ourselves as parents, caregivers, teachers, and community members. We must be aware of what substances are here and readily available; it is then that we will be able to discuss the dangers with our kids and identify the signs that may save their lives.

This event is free, however, registration is required. Please do not wait! Register for this Zoom forum today by scanning the QR code above. Invite other parents, caregivers, and educators to join us as well! For more information, please refer to the event flyer. **Families are encouraged to join this event together.
