Teens In the Garden State
The requirements for the club: to be drug, alcohol and smoke free.
We have about 40 members that work hard to make this club a success.
Members of TIGS get together to reinforce their decision to be drug, alcohol, and smoke free. They try to influence their peers to realize that they can have fun without using drugs or alcohol. We provide presentations to the entire school every year that educates the students and staff about the possible effects of using drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes. The members have gone on high and low ropes courses together to build trust and friendships. They have done work for Middlesex county and represent our school at Community Unity Day, which requires them to help educate the families of Sayreville about drug and alcohol abuse.
Every summer we send students to a Teen Leadership Conference, which allows students to spend a week attending seminars and workshops dedicated to educating the students about drug and alcohol abuse. Students enjoy the camp so much that they offer another camp for students to reunite when they attend college.
