The Road Show is a 30-60 minute multi-media workshop presented entirely by youth from Dover and packaged in a high energy, interactive format.
Students from Dover Y2Y describe or demonstrate a variety of their own very creative anti-tobacco or anti-drug activities and projects in a way that will inspire other youth or youth groups to action. Examples of the types of initiatives that are described include: counter-advertising actions, community & school awareness programs, media & public service announcements, legislative initiatives, and theatrical presentations.
This presentation, when given to youth, often spurs interest in becoming an advocate in their own community on drug prevention issues. Students see that it is possible to get involved and have fun at the same time. A shortened version of this presentation is often provided to adults and youth leaders in communities considering if they want to start a similar youth empowerment program.
This presentation features demonstrations and explanations of how to replicate a wide array of drug prevention projects and activities. The training includes a discussion of initiatives such as: The Samantha Skunk Program, Spencer Gifts Protest, Plaster the Walls, Sticker Shock, Gear Exchange, Logo Lampoon Contest, Developing PSAs & skits, and other projects that can be found in the menu of this website. The students use many visuals, videos, and samples of work product from the different initiatives to illustrate the activities. This presentation is not designed to be as interactive as some of our other presentations.
This presentation can be requested with an emphasis on tobacco activities or an underage drinking focus – or it can be geared for a mostly adult audience with a greater emphasis on how to start and manage a program of this size and complexity.
