In partnership with the Raymond Middle and High Schools, the Raymond Coalition for Youth brought the Improbable Players to their 835 middle and high schoolers to address substance abuse during graduation and prom season. The project grew from one day to one week and included the performance at both schools as well as a pre and post educational discussions.
"The purpose of the presentation was to highlight that substance misuse is not something that effects just one person, but many families, friends and others."
Reaction to the program? "[The Principal] thinks it was one of the most successful programs he has seen to help generate conversation and connecting the students with services. He got a good number of calls from parents whose students came home and discussed it with them as well. This is such a huge step to breaking down the walls of silence so people can access help."
