Join the D.R.E.A.M. Team
We empower our peers in the Battle Ground School District to live drug-free lives by hosting fun events, providing strategies and techniques for staying drug-free, and opportunities to have open and honest conversations about drugs, alcohol, and coping with stress or depression.
Our goal is to be living examples of the fact that you don’t need drugs or alcohol to feel good. We’re working to create an encouraging, and uplifting community of young people who can lean on each other for support!
