Community FORUMS


#NotEvenOnce® Projects facilitate community and workplace forums which provide education and support to concerned parents, teachers and community members.  The "Changing the Narrative" theme presented in the community seminars, provides attendees with information on the current alcohol and drug culture, explores some of the underlying reasons for uptake and highlights how to identify the tell-tale signs that someone is using.

The forums can include a small discussion group workshop to facilitate discussion on key topics such as "how drugs and alcohol impact families and workplaces", "what the participants see as being the real problem" and "what can they do to be positive change agents within their own communities.”


"Thank you for sharing with so much knowledge and passion!  Not boring or too much hype.”
