Red Ribbon Week Activities – What Works?
You’ve tried all the standard Red Ribbon Week activities, but how many students actually learned anything? Sometimes students sign the pledge just to feel like they’re participating. In fact, the message sometimes turns into more of a peer pressure activity than the valuable learning experience it should be. For a truly successful drug free message, you need positive reinforcement and a fun way to teach kids that drugs really aren’t the best choice for a happy, healthy life.
Hard Work Pays Off
Some people turn to drugs as an escape from all the hard work ahead of them. Students see that as drugs making life easier. What they don’t see is how drugs end up taking over a person’s life and the end goal is never achieved. Perfection on Wheels uses a professional BMX stunt team to prove that hard work really does pay off in the end. By proving that hard work is something to embrace, students see the value of living drug free instead of trying to take shortcuts.
Fun Without Drugs
Another misconception students often have about drugs is you have more fun when you take a little something. The action packed BMX school assembly shows that you never need drugs to have fun. From start to finish, the assembly is all about having fun. Students see first hand that having fun is all about simply enjoying what you’re doing with friends.
Finding What You Love
Students are bound to face peer pressure to do drugs at some point in their life. Whether it’s from a student they don’t know or one of their closest friends, they need to have some reason to stand up and say no. The positive messages from Perfection on Wheels educate students about the value of focusing on what you love to do and never letting anything get in the way of that, including drugs. Students then find confidence in exploring their passion and avoiding drugs becomes far easier than they ever thought possible.
A Lesson For Life
We go beyond a piece of paper or a lecture. Our Red Ribbon Week assembly program teaches a life long lesson that students will never forget. As with most exciting experiences, students tend to remember every detail, including what is taught. Better yet, students then become teachers and role models themselves. In talking about the BMX stunts, they also talk about the drug free message and grow up being drug free role models to others. It’s a lesson that truly lasts.
