The Clark County STASHA (Strong Teens Against Substance Hazards and Abuse) Peer Education Program is recruiting youth to fill vacant positions for the 2012-13 program year.

STASHA peer educators address alcohol and other drug issues among youth in Clark County.

To be eligible, youth ages 12-19 must be Clark County residents and have an interest in sharing their opinions and perspectives about substance abuse prevention. Training is provided.

The group is comprised of 20 youth. Representatives include those who have never used drugs or alcohol, youth who have experimented or used, and youth who have completed treatment and are now in recovery.

Youth serve a one-year term and commit to attending evening meetings on the first and third Mondays of the month.

Applications are available at http://www.clark.wa.gov/youth-family/prevention.html. The deadline is June 29.
