Above the Influence encourages our youngsters to be themselves, and not let negative influence sway their judgment. Pressure to drink, do drugs, be thin, discriminate against others, act violently, take steroids, join a gang, or do anything that goes against “who they are” in order to fit in is negative influence.
Numerous local agencies will stand and march with us on Saturday May 18th. Participants will leave from the School Board headquarters, Kathleen C. Wright School Board Building, 600 SE Third Avenue, downtown Fort Lauderdale at 8:30 am with the march to Huizenga Plaza, where a youth rally will be held at10:00 am. Our young people will showcase their talents, including step team, spoken word and dance performances. In addition, there will be an appearance by a surprise celebrity. Refreshments, prizes and other surprises!
The march is open to all and will encourage our youth and families to engage in a healthy lifestyle that is “Above the Influence”. We hope to see you there!”
