"These teens will be able to talk to other teens about underage drinking and anti-tobacco and drug information." said IFCC member, La Viza Matthews "We feel when training comes peer to peer, it's a lot better. It's a lot more relatable. Kids relate to kids better."
Impact Teen members said they are excited to be able to help their peers understand the benefits of being smoke-free.
Supporting her "staying above" t-shirt, Impact Teen, MeKenna Matthews said, "My favorite part is helping people and sharing with the community what we're about. Itâ??s really exciting to help people that going down the wrong path to get them in the right path."
The IFCC will host its first youth-led and parent support Say What! training program on Monday, July 1, 2013.
