Volunteer opportunity: Adolescent Substance Abuse Prevention

Adult with children

Adult with children

  • Do you enjoy teaching, spending time with kids, or serving our Indianapolis community?
  • Need a break from studying or want to bank some community service hours?
  • Want a jump start on pathology or even a quick refresher?

ASAP (Adolescent Substance Abuse Prevention) could be the right volunteer opportunity for you!

The basics:

  • We use plastinated pathology organs to teach 5th-12th grade students how substance abuse negatively affects their bodies.
  • Events are held at local schools and Boys & Girls Clubs and last 1-2 hours.
  • NO outside studying or preparation is required!
  • Attend as many or as few events as you want- even if it’s just one!
  • Any student, MS1-MS4, is welcome to participate.
  • We do our best to schedule events away from exams!

Our next event:
Wednesday, February 7th from 5:30-6:30 pm at Finish Line Boys and Girls Club; Located at 3870 N. Post Rd, Indianapolis IN 46226

How do I get started?
