Many adults feel drinking and drug use is a rite of passage and think teen parties are the same as when they were young. Straight Up youth want parents to face the current realities and learn why and how we need adults to help change these dangerous social norms in Ventura County.
Teen actors portray scenes from a house party and voice the concerns expressed by local teens and young adults about trends in youth alcohol and drug use.
After each performance or tour we facilitate community dialogue with a panel to answer questions and discuss ideas for change.
A Ventura County teen made this documentary about her experiences while viewing and participating in Straight Up Reality Parties for Parents. [direct link]
