Columns of Commitment
Activities and Socials
The Troupe believes that it is important to provide fun, drug-free activities for our members and we host recreational
activities monthly. These events include,
but are not limited to: holiday parties,
lock-ins, and field days.
We assist at community events such as Keep Mandeville Beautiful, Ultimate Tailgate Party, and PA Days at various junior high schools and volunteer with organizations such as Adopt-A-Family during the holiday season.
We do whatever we can to get our name and our message out into the community, whether that's by making youtube videos, going to conferences, or putting flyers around town.
We believe that it is important for members to be educated about the new trends in drug use, how to help a friend who might be experimenting with drugs, and the harmful effects of various kinds of drugs. We also focus on teaching leadership, communication, and teamwork skills. This is the purpose of our meetings; the high school Troupe members alternate at coordinating fun, yet informative monthly meetings for members to attend.
