Jessica Sexton and Koen Schwenk sit down with Jodi Salvo to discuss Red Ribbon Week. Learn all about Red Ribbon Week and what it is, how it came to be, and what school districts in Tuscarawas County are doing to celebrate, including a door decoration at the home of County Commissioner Al Landis.

Jessica works for OhioGuidestone and serves as the Youth Facilitator for the Youth Advisory Board (YAB) and Youth-to-Youth (Y2Y) programs in the county. Koen is a junior at Dover High School and is an active member of both the YAB and Y2Y groups.

Jessica and Koen provide information and share their experiences about these youth prevention programs. They talk about drug prevention and awareness in our youth, especially during this season of COVID when kids may have increased access to drugs due to school closings and remote learning.

Parents! Listen as a high school student puts you on notice and provides insight about the world your kids are living in. Koen's willingness to be open and honest might help you recognize warning signs in your own children.
