High School Programs
Youth in Action
Haddam-Killingworth Youth In Action is a group of high school youth from Haddam and Killingworth that focuses on community service and prevention activities. The group meets once per week during their lunch activity period. Some activities may take place after school or on weekends.
Community service is known to be a powerful protective factor in stopping youth drug use before it starts. Community service builds self esteem, builds community, teaches useful skills, and strengthens student relationships. Students learn a sense of responsibility, and the knowledge that an individual or a group of individuals can make a difference. Many of the group’s activities are made possible by a grant from the Middlesex County Substance Abuse Action Council www.mcsaac.org. We thank them for their support.
This group is facilitated by Youth and Family Services of Haddam-Killingworth staff. Permission slips completed by a parent or guardian are needed. Please call 345-7498 or email Deborah@hkyfs.org for a current schedule or to request a permission slip.
