The Choose sNOw program is for students currently in grades 7-12. Students earn season passes by attending 2 evening substance abuse prevention events in the spring with their parents, and by participating in a community service requirement, Vermont GreenUP Day. The evening presentations generally include nationally-known presenters covering topics such as drug & alcohol prevention, risk-taking, peer pressure, traffic safety, making healthy choices, etc. In addition, to these evening events, funding from Choose sNOw provides local assemblies during the school day at Twin Valley Middle High School for all of our students in grades 6-12. We believe that this is an important element of the program as it benefits all of our youth, not only those that are able to participate in the pass program.
The student cost for the Choose sNOw program is $50.00 for a season pass (valued at $700). Registration typically takes place in February. 100% of the funds collected are donated to DVCP to support a variety of programs and activities.
Thank you to Kelly Pawluk, Mount Snow General Manager, for this important collaboration to reduce substance use among our youth and to Mount Snow staff, Matt Conroy and Claire Sears for all of their efforts on the Choose sNOw program. For more information about Choose sNOw!
