Investing Together in the Healthy Drug Free Choices of our Youth!
Drug-Free Youth (D-Fy) is an initiative for area youth in 6th through 12th grade. D-Fy helps create a movement of peers who share a commitment to make positive choices and live a healthy, drug-free life. D-Fy also helps to grow a community culture to support these youth. D-Fy members are eligible to receive local discounts and attend special D-Fy events. Youth complete a membership application confirming their commitment to be drug, alcohol, and tobacco free. All potential members validate this commitment through a confidential drug screening when they join, and agree to be screened randomly throughout their membership year. Once the application is validated, members receive a photo ID membership card that entitles them to discounts at participating businesses and entrance to member-only events. Voluntary membership is renewable on a yearly basis. D-Fy Business Partners are establishments that offer discounts or other special perks for D-Fy members, are critical to the success of this initiative, and help create a community culture that support youth who are making positive choices. D-Fy business partners receive free advertising on the D-Fy website, a "We Support Drug Free Youth" window cling, and are identified as a partner in a variety D-Fy materials.
