D-FY-IT is a voluntary program for youth to learn leadership skills and assist their peers to stay drug free. The community and merchants offer discounts and incentives for those youth who participate in staying drug free.
D-FY-IT is offered to those youth in grades 7th through 12th who attend an accredited school, public, private or home school.
To inspire the youth of the Midland Community to lead substance -free lives by making healthy life choices.
D-FY-IT provides a confidential avenue for youth to voluntarily stay drug free with incentives and activities.
D-FY-IT works closely with school counselors and parents if a problem is identified.
Parents have asked D-FY-IT for additional information regarding drug testing and identification signs that their child may be using alcohol or drugs. D-FY-IT is a program that can offer this information as well as referrals to organizations that can help if a problem exists. D-FY-IT is also a deterrent for youth to engage in alcohol or drug use, focusing on prevention.
Cassie Dresel, Executive Director, has been with D-FY-IT for 4 years. Her focus is on Board Development, Community Awareness and Fundraising. Raising the community's awareness of prevention methods, and D-FY-IT as a great source for parents is accomplished through speaking engagements offered to businesses and local special interest groups.
Rita Childs, Program Director, has been with D-FY-IT for 5 years. She has training in prevention and volunteer management. Her focus is on servicing the students and adult volunteers of Midland County. She is also available for speaking engagement on prevention and drug identification topics.
Paula Cannon, Assistant Program Director, is the Teens in Charge coordinator. Having been to Power camp this summer, she has brought back Midland youth who are excited and eager to begin on community plans. With her "can-do" attitude and a passion for the kids and volunteers, this year promises to be a great one!
