Coordinators of the Youth Development Program at BeBee CME ChurcJi have sent out letters to parents of church members and to the community urging them to register their children in a drug education program. The letters read as follows: "Dear Parent: In less than five years it is highly possible that 80 per cent of our children will be drug addicts. More than likely, one of these will be yours. "Why??? Some section of our city is presently filled with drug pushers. The drug industry, as any other industry, must constantly concern itself with (he question of expansion in order to ensure its existence. When one specifically speaks about drugs, this means that more drug addicts must be created. Young innocent children have become victims of such an expansion in all of the larger cities. Therefore, we predict that in less than five years, the drug industry will be well in small cities or towns like our own, and that 80 per cent of our children will become drug addicts. "In clearer terms, it is highly possible that out of the first ten children closest to you (starting with -your own), eight will become drug addicts in less than five years, if we do not move more now to stop the spread of drugs. -.- x •-. "Question: How can^vyestop this evil process? "Answer: By steering our children through his or her danger years (childhood and adolescence). "Question: What does the Youth Development Program propose as a way to do this? "Aftswer; It proposes four basic plans: . . ... I. "Supplement to Education. A. To develop the child's mind and overall maturity to a pbint where he or she will be more reliable when faced with a decision to say yes or no to a pusher. It. Supplement to Family Life. A. By relating to the children through a big brother or big sister program. III. Cultural Supplement. A. Where we will endeavor to emphasize some of the more positive aspects of our own culture. IV'. Recreational Supplement. A. To develop and sustain the body through programs which will be both entertaining and meaningful. "All you need to do is bring your children to the .main sanctuary of the church and register them with Mrs* P. Gant's choir any Monday evening between 6 and 7 pjn. Non'tnembers of the church are invited to become a part«this program. In addition to this, the Sunday evening Rap Session or meeting will meet at ipJh.--.We urge your attendance here because the success of this program depends upon full participation arid hard work on the part of all (Registration will go on at this time also).
