On October 8, 2014 we launched our Parents Who Host Lose the Most (PWH) Campaign. This public awareness program is designed to educate communities, especially parents, about the health and safety risks of serving alcohol at teen parties.
Through our program we bring information about Camarillo’s Social Host Ordinance to the public. We also share important information about the risks adolescent drinkers take – physically, mentally, and emotionally.
While sharing this information at every opportunity, we particularly bring our information to venues where families go: grocery stores, religious institutions, community events and schools. We also make sure to disseminate this information during celebratory times for youth such as Homecoming, holidays, prom, and graduation for these events are when underage drinking parties often occur.
Finally, we go the extra mile to bring this message to those in the community who greatly need it. With the support of the Camarillo Police Department, we print and distribute door hangars with information about the Social Host Ordinance to neighborhoods in which there have been teenage drinking parties. These neighbors now have easily accessible information about how to report the parties.
This program encourages parents and the entire community to send a unified message that teen alcohol consumption is unhealthy, unsafe, illegal and unacceptable. In brief our message is “Don’t be a party to teenage drinking!”
