First on Mix 104.1 and MixTV.tv: From Cleveland City Schools- Bradley County and Cleveland City Schools have announced a partnership with ATS The Bridge, a nonprofit organization committed to raising awareness about the dangers of substance abuse, vaping, and opioids with a special focus on students in the community.
Joining forces with ATS The Bridge allows both school districts to enhance their impact on the community and provide crucial resources for prevention.
Jared Waldrop with ATS The Bridge is equally enthusiastic about the collaboration and its potential impact. “We believe that prevention is key, and through partnerships like these, we can make a real difference in the lives of students. Our goal is to provide them with the tools and knowledge necessary to navigate the challenges of substance misuse.”
In a focused campaign, the collaboration will address the dangers of vaping, employing various strategies such as public service announcements (PSAs), a targeted social media campaign, and hosting community events. This multifaceted approach aims to reach children and adolescents through channels they engage with regularly.
As part of the inaugural initiative, school system leaders, alongside ATS The Bridge, will host an event at the PIE Center Compass Assembly on February 13th, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. This event will serve as a platform to kickstart the campaign with parent-teacher organization (PTO) members by providing valuable information on vaping and substance abuse prevention.
