NDC teens at Pirates Week to slow drug use

Teens from the Youth to Youth programme at the National Drug Council (N.D.C) are gearing up to set examples for teenagers at the “Teen Up” Street Dance a space reserved for teens during the festival where parents can feel at ease.

D.C’s Programmes Coordinator Brenda Watson said based on the Cayman Islands Students Drug Use Survey (CISDUS) it’s safe to say many teens on island remain drug free.

Teenager Bianca Rego-Ramos said with young people setting the example it’s easier for other teens to relate.

“We encourage kids to have a good time without drugs and alcohol cause I feel like kids listen more to their peers than they do to adults,”
Ms. Watson said young people should be encouraged to be apart of Pirate’s week as it is a part of Caymanian heritage and added it’s important they do so in a drug free manner.
