Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) has teamed up with the City of Milton Police Department to host two free workshops Sunday, Aug. 4 aimed at making the community safer through stopping underage drinking.
These workshops will be held from 4 to 5 p.m. in City Council Chambers of Milton’s City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway Suite 107E (click here for directions). This workshop is open to the entire community, and parents are encouraged to bring their kids.
The workshops are:
- The Power of Parents: Parents will learn tips and tricks on how to talk to their kids and youth in their family about alcohol and leave with a handbook they can use for future interactions.

- The Power of Youth: Organizers focus on empowering high school and middle school students to not give in to peer pressure, encourage other teens not to drink before they are 21 and not ride with a drunk drive

“Talking to your kids about the negative impacts of underage drinking can be hard,” said Ara Baronian, community outreach officer for the City of Milton. “Let us teach you some easy ways to effectively talk to them about alcohol.”
