Wake Up Call Training
Everything you need to implement Wake Up Call in your community!
The Wake Up Call training is a 6-hour interactive class that will provide you with the necessary skills and information for implementing a Wake Up Call in your community.
Wake-Up Call is a life-size exhibit of a teen’s bedroom with more than 20 “red flags” that can signal drug or alcohol use. The bedroom identifies spots where teens may hide drugs, household items that can be used as drug paraphernalia and ways teens try to cover up drug and alcohol use. Wake Up Call is a valuable resource that should be available in every community
