WCPG Outreach Program
Thursday, March 17, 2016
The WCPG Outreach Program has been traveling all across the
state this school year. During the 2015-16 school year we have
reached over 4,000 students and 1,100 educators already!
Students enjoy learning about gambling and problem gambling.
Through games and group activities, youth are able to learn the
warning signs and resources available for those struggling with
problem gambling and gambling disorders. Students have the
opportunity to create
artwork that is featured regularly on the WCPG website.
We hear often from educators that problem gambling is not
something they find in their students' textbooks. Gambling Disorder
is recognized by the American Psychiatric Association as an
addiction. It is categorized the same as alcohol and drugs.
Education about gambling disorders is an easy fit into most
existing AODA/AOTA curriculums.
