TREND636-891-6800636-891-8817

​TBA

​Turning Resources and Energy in New Directions is a student-led organization which promotes a non-violent lifestyle free of alcohol and other drugs through educational programs and positive alternatives to the typical party scene which encourages drinking and other drug use. Groups of students in middle school, high school, and college, who choose to celebrate sober, form local prevention groups called TREND ​​chapters. Working with their schools and communities, TREND Chapters organize drug free alternatives including social/recreational activities and community service projects. Through education and motivation, TREND seeks to create a new social norm which equates fun with partying sober and helping other less fortunate than themselves. (NCADA-stl.org)
 
Through the past couple of years the Summit TREND chapter has participated in organizing the Red Ribbon Week, Kick Butts Day, Great National Smoke-out Day. “TRENDsetters” have attended the National Youth Leadership Training conventions, the Speak Hard Youth Leadership event in Jefferson City, and the Teen Institute. TREND members have led the way, in cooperation with Rockwood’s DrugFree Schools Coalition, to help their fellow students celebrate responsibly by going out into the community to enlist business support to prohibit underage alcohol consumption for Prom and Homecoming. The TREND chapter has provided Build-a-Bears to cancer patients at Children’s Hospital.
