As part of NCPC’s efforts to educate the community on the issue of underage drinking, NCPYC members at Vista High School and Rancho Buena Vista High School are planning and organizing two community forums in Vista to discuss the problem. The forums will be open to youth and their parents and will take place at VAVPA, 600 N Santa Fe Avenue, Vista, CA. One forum will be conducted in Spanish on Tuesday, March 15th, 2010 and one in English on Thursday, March 25th, 2010, both from 6 to 8 PM. By creating an atmosphere which allows for a community conversation about this issue to ensue, it is hoped that not only will the causes and effects of the problem be identified, but that people will also discuss solutions to the problem of underage drinking in a proactive way.
