Above the Influence (ATI) Youth March/Rally May 17, 2014

Above the Influence (ATI) Youth March/Rally May 17, 2014

It’s a state of mind. It’s about being yourself and not letting negative influences get to you.  Pressure to drink, do drugs or do anything that goes against who you are in order to fit in—that’s negative influence.  ATI’s goal  is to help teens stand up to and rise above negative pressures, or influences. What type of influence would you say that you are above?  Join us  and show the world at this year’s ATI Youth March/Rally on May 17, 2014!
