The Archdiocese of NY Drug Abuse Prevention Program, along
with our coalition partners, the Throggs Neck Community
Action Partnership and Forward South Bronx Community
Coalition, partnered with the New York Council on Problem
Gambling to participate in the YOU(th) Decide project to work
to prevent underage gambling in the Bronx.
to everyone who supported the
YOU(th) Decide Project!
Research indicates that among New York State youth between the ages of 12 and 17, 39.5% have
gambled in the past year. YOU(th) Decide is a prevention effort aimed at raising awareness,
educating, and therefore reducing underage gambling.
ADAPP would like to recognize the following schools and organizations for signing a
resolution of support for the YOU(th) Decide project in our community:
BX Healthy Start at Einstein
Emma L. Bowen Community Service Center
NYC Problem Gambling Resource Center
We would also like to recognize the following schools and organizations for allowing
us to provide education about underage gambling and to encourage youth to
discuss what they learn with peers, parents and community leaders:
Cardinal Hayes High School Mount St. Michael Academy P&J Beacon Phipps NYC
The Throggs Neck Food Outreach Collaborative, a joint venture between the
Throggs Neck Community Alliance, the Northeast Bronx Community Farmers Market
and Fort Schuyler Presbyterian Church for allowing us to provide education for
parents about underage gambling.
