Trauma Center Wake Up! Youth Program
- A Community Alcohol/Drug Education and Injury Prevention Program
of The American Trauma Society AZ Division
in conjunction with St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center
Targets youth between the ages of 13 and 20 who are first time offenders of the zero tolerance laws surrounding underage drinking.
We believe in preventing injury by educating youth and the community about the consequences of alcohol and drug use. Through education and shared learning, the staff and participants explore consequences and entertain new choices and alternatives related to alcohol and drug use. The goal for each session in the Trauma Center Wake Up! Youth Program is to have the participants envision their lives differently and to “consider the possibilities”.
