Parkway PATH (Peers Advocating for Total Health) is a teen lead initiative that consists of a series of programs geared to prevent and/or reduce the student's use of alcohol, e-cigarettes, marijuana, and other drugs as well as build resiliency and support systems. Through age-appropriate conversations, PATH programs educate students about the unhealthy consequences of drug use and the benefits of choosing a healthy lifestyle. Ultimately, our hope is to empower each student to have the attitude to “Learn It, Live It, and Pass It On.”
PATH programs recruit high school students to facilitate a variety of meaningful lessons ranging from smoking prevention to character education. These students sign a Safe and Drug-free Code of Conduct and serve as role models among their peers, for younger students, and in the community.
