If you are a Manatee County teen who chooses to be drug free, you can cash in on your good choices!
D-Fy Sign up events take place at 6-8 p.m. every Tuesday at GT Bray Park, 5502 33rd Ave. W., Bradenton, FL 34209.
Drug-Free Youth, or D-Fy, is an organization of peers who share the commitment to make positive choices and live a healthy, drug-free life. Members are eligible to receive local discounts and attend special D-Fy events. There may also be opportunities to receive volunteer hours, graduation cords, hiring preference, and internships.
Joining D-Fy is FREE! Applicants must be ages 13-18 (or still in school) and must complete a membership application at sign-up events. The application includes the student’s commitment to be alcohol, tobacco (including E-cigs) and drug free. All members validate this commitment though a confidential drug screening when they join, and verify their commitment to STAY drug free though random screenings throughout their membership. Once the application is validated, members receive a photo ID card. This card allows them to gain entrance at member-only events and receive discounts at local businesses and retailers.
Interested teens can find out more information by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
