Our events are intended to empower and teach parents the necessary skills to go home and begin an effective and ongoing conversation with their child about the dangers of drugs & alcohol. Attendees will leave with an understanding of the importance of these conversations, and more knowledge on issues pertaining to adolescent drug & alcohol use.
Hidden In Plain View
Hidden in Plain View is a traveling bedroom exhibit that we set up on-site for parents to search & explore. The exhibit contains over 70 items that could signal involvement in risky activities including alcohol and drug use. Parents learn how to recognize these warning signs and get prevention tips for talking with their kids about the dangers of substance use. Hidden in Plain View can be a standalone service (Parent Teacher Conferences, etc.), or in conjunction with our standard 45-minute presentation (recommended).
Help educate more parents by bringing this exhibit to your kids’ school.
Audiences range from parents to educators and everyone in-between. We recommend only adults attend our events due to some of the content addressed.
Who can book an event?
Anyone. Typically, someone will contact us when they have a group of parents interested in our message.
What does it cost to book an event?
As of October 1, 2018, we have rolled out an updated prevention program that includes an educational booklet for every family that attends an event. We now charge $500 for local events and $1000 for events that are over 45 minutes away from our headquarters in Chesterfield, MO. Events that last longer than 3 hours in duration or include multiple presentations may incur an additional $100 fee per presentation.
We charge $3000 plus hotel accommodations for out-of-state presentations that require an overnight stay. If you are unable to afford this fee, please let us know and we can work on a solution with you. We want all communities to have access to our program.
Where are presentations generally done?
We are quite flexible on where presentations are held. Whether it’s a school, a church, or someone’s home, we can make it work.
How long is the presentation?
The presentation itself is about 45 minutes, and includes key prevention information as well as a personal story. A PowerPoint presentation is utilized. Separate from the presentation is our ‘Hidden in Plain View’ bedroom exhibit that attendees explore before and/or after the presentation. Since both the presentation and the bedroom exhibit are equally important, we recommend doing both if time permits. However, we will do only one or the other if requested.
How long does it take to set up the ‘Hidden in Plain View’ exhibit?
We will arrive an hour before the event to set up. Any extra hands that you can provide for unloading and loading the bedroom items are always very much appreciated!
