WCPG Outreach Program
Friday, May 29, 2015
My name is Andrea and I am the Outreach Coordinator here at
WCPG. This position was created in August of 2014. It has been an
exciting journey so far, building our Outreach program. I have met
some really great students throughout the state as well as many
teachers who are dedicated to giving the absolute best to their
students and helping to prepare them to be successful young
Did you know, adolescents ages 12-19 are at a high risk of
developing gambling problems? Because they are not legally old
enough to gamble, and there are no visible signs, as there are with
other addictions, youth gambling can often go unnoticed.
We are dedicated to increasing awareness of the issue of teen
gambling with students as well as educators. Since August, I have
presented to 668 students and 18 educators. These students
participated in a fun new program that encourages learning the
facts about both gambling and gambling disorder.
We have recently created a new Facebook page, targeted to teens
and young adults. Be sure to "like" us!
