Scott sent in this question:
My son is home schooled and has to do the requirement for second class 9a. The drug awareness part. do you have any suggestions on what he can do to meet this requirement? Any help would be great. Thanks Scott
This is Second Class requirement 9a:
- Participate in a school, community, or troop program on the dangers of using drugs, alcohol, and tobacco, and other practices that could be harmful to your health. Discuss your participation in the program with your family, and explain the dangers of substance addictions.
I recommend you check out the BSA substance abuse program Drugs: A Deadly Game . You can order the materials online. They are often available at your local Scout shop as well. He could do this program with his patrol, troop, home school association, etc. While these types of programs are often completed in a group setting, your troop leadership might also consider letting him do it on his own. Check with them.
