Red Ribbon Week with Omni Youth Programs – October 25 - 29
What is Red Ribbon Week?
Red Ribbon Week is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention awareness program. Red Ribbon week was Established in 1985 to honor the memory of Drug Enforcement Agent Enrique (Kiki) Camarena. This alcohol, tobacco, other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign is observed annually in October in the United States. The Red Ribbon campaign symbolizes a commitment to raise awareness of the destruction caused by drugs in America. Red Ribbon week serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. Since its beginning, the campaign has reached millions of U.S. children and families.
At Omni Youth Programs, we are excited to share all they ways we will be active during this year’s Red Ribbon Week. And there are many opportunities for you to get involved too!
