Find your people. Find your purpose.
Independent thinking teens focus on things that make them happy – which is not using substances. One Clear Path is a social change campaign developed by CiC’s Youth Leadership Council, made up of Ridge and Bernards High School students. These young leaders are choosing nonuse and spreading the reasons why avoiding substances is the One Clear Path to reaching their goals.
Continue the trend.
Nationally, teens have been choosing not to use substances in growing numbers for decades. But they aren’t the kids making headlines for everything they’re doing right. We sometimes start believing the “everyone’s doing it” line, but that’s simply not true. In the Somerset Hills towns, 75% of high schoolers do not use marijuana, 68% do not vape, and over half do not drink alcohol (Pride 2019).
