We are pleased to share that Marin Academy is joining a growing parent initiative called Be The Influence. “Be the Influence” or "BTI" is a parenting program which seeks to reduce rates of teen binge drinking, alcohol, marijuana, nicotine and other drug use. BTI supports parents by providing:
- A website with well-researched educational materials.
- Bi-monthly newsletters full of parenting tips and other timely information.
- An on-line forum called “TalkSpace” which is a place for parents to ask questions of each other or start a discussion.
- An optional commitment or pledge that families can make (if they choose) to commit to specific actions that reinforce the safety and well-being of their teens.
You can check out the BTI website here
and find a sign up for the newsletter here.
In addition, you can access the newsletter on the Resources page of our website.
