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.
