City of Palmdale logoThe City of Palmdale is excited to announce a critical initiative to empower our youth and safeguard their futures: the Fentanyl Awareness Spring Program. Designed for young community members aged 12 to 17, it is a three-day educational series that will be held from Tuesday, March 26, through Thursday, March 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This free program offers essential tools for personal growth, social skills and resistance against drugs and other pressures. Students will learn how to make informed decisions, practice stress reduction techniques, build effective anger management strategies and gain insights into fostering positive relationships. Moreover, they will learn to navigate challenging social situations and critically evaluate media influences.

“We are committed to equipping students in our community with the knowledge and skills necessary to make positive choices for a brighter future,” said Mayor Austin Bishop. “Together, we can educate, empower and protect our youth from the dangers of substance misuse.”

The program will be hosted at Palmdale Oasis Park Recreation Center at 3850 E. Ave. S. in Palmdale and Lancaster Community Center at 44611 Yucca Ave in Lancaster. Lunch and water are included.
