Join drug-free teens for an IDFY summer


By EXPRESS STAFF

    Connect with friends and have fun this summer by joining The Drug Coalition’s signature program called “IDFY”
    IDFY members enjoy benefits like fitness club admission, trips to activities like Paint Ball and Jump Time, community volunteer opportunities, according to Drug Coalition executive director Michael David.
    Membership is free of charge and open to students entering grades 7-12. The program also continues during the school year. Donations to The Drug Coalition are appreciated.
    IDFY members can travel to the four-day teen conference called Idaho Youth Summit in Coeur d’Alene June 10-13.
    A youth program active in 67 chapters across Idaho, IDFY asks students and parents to sign contracts to become and stay drug-free and alcohol-free. Its mission is one of group support to make healthy choices.
    Engaged in IDFY (Idaho Drug Free Youth) are about 50 students in the Wood River High School program and 70 at the Wood River Middle School. They are led by paid, full-time adult coordinators with funding support from the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation.
