I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but Rethink the Drink has a new sidebar button to the left! It says, “Just Us Teens.com” and you should absolutely check it out! Just Us Teens is the online web home for the Bartow and Floyd County Youth Action Teams in north Georgia. These local groups are comprised of youth members from the community who are dedicated to being role models for their peers and to inform them about the consequences of harmful decisions.

The Youth Action Teams focus on educating their fellow youth about topics such as “teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, underage alcohol use, texting and driving, bullying, etc. The youth also develop strategies needed to promote positive youth development and involvement within their community.”
