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 adults.

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!
