Second Genesis Foundation Announces Grant to Community of Concern
The Community of Concern is a partnership of parents, students, schools and other organizations working together to keep youth alcohol, tobacco and other drug free, using science as the foundation. The centerpiece of the initiative is our award-winning booklet, compiled by a committee of parents from Georgetown Preparatory School and reviewed by experts. ‘A Parent’s Guide for the Prevention of Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Use’ has spread in a grass-roots fashion and there are nearly 2 million copies in parent’s hands in 37 states and 4 countries.
The Community of Concern has a team of nationally prominent neuroscientists who translate their research into lay terms so that both parents and students can understand the negative effects of alcohol and other drugs on young brain development. By joining together, parents, students, schools and other organizations are able to participate as a group in the effort to prevent alcohol and other drug use through education and cooperation. Together we are stronger than alone.
Second Genesis recently funded a grant to Community of Concern to provide working capital, finance customer initiatives and to update and upgrade their website.
Principals of both organizations can be reached through their respective websites:
