Stick it to 'em
Unfiltered REALity, a tobacco prevention group
based in Mitchell, is DOING A LOT!
The group is comprised of about 250 Mitchell students, grades 6-12,
and they're changing social attitudes toward tobacco use. Students in
Unfiltered REALity often participate in service learning opportunities
which allow them to have useful roles in their community. In turn, this
gives adults the opportunity to value them and see them as resources.
The service learning projects often encompass social justice issues
revolving around tobacco as well as poverty and reducing hunger.
