It’s time to cheer today’s youth and tomorrow’s future!
On Saturday, May 18, thousands of students throughout Broward County will come together for a one-of-a-kind youth rally. Called “Above the Influence,” the event is a joint effort created by United Way of Broward County Commission on Substance Abuse and the Broward County Public Schools (BCPS). It is designed to celebrate students making the right decisions – to resist peer pressure, eschew violence and avoid drugs. Organizers of “Above the Influence” are hoping to draw 3,000 to 5,000 children from more than 40 schools, ranging in age from kindergarten to 12th grade. A rousing march from the Kathleen C. Wright (KC Wright) Administration Building to Huizenga Plaza will be followed by a rally at the plaza, with inspiring speeches and dynamic performances.
