IDAHO DRUG-FREE YOUTH INC
September 24, 2011
I have been apart of this LIFE CHANGING organization since I was in the sixth grade! Now I might not have had much to do with it back them, but as I went to more meeting and got to know more and more people I realized that I loved this place that I was at in my life. Having IDFY in my life helped me become a leader I would have never become! It broke me out of my shell and showed me that no matter what I am doing as long as I am doing it for the good I can help to change peoples lives! Being a part of IDFY to me wasn't just another club from school I was in, and going to the events wasn't just another school thing I was going to it was part of me! They made me feel welcome and loved and I grew to not just appreciate that it was there, but to love that I could have those people around to just talk to and help me get through things. I didn't have a problem telling people no to things like drugs. IDFY helped me to realize that drugs where such a small problem in my life, but for others it was hard for them to get a way form them. They changed me from a person that tried and did any thing just to fit in to a person that made friends because they like who I was as a person, or they loved that I was there for them. I can truly say that all the members of IDFY are my family. From the kids that are just joining to the board of IDFY that helps us make all of this happen! If it weren't for IDFY I truly think that I would have been in jail for the rest of my life because I had the friends to get drugs from and the friends that would or asked me to do them. Other teenagers might say that sports helped them or their parents helped them, but I say IDFY helped me and this place is one place that I love to call home even though I can't live with every person that is part of it, I would love to!
SURPRISE IDFY! I LOVE YOU SO SO SO MUCH!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the fact that I have touched a drug since I got avidly involved, and the fact that it made me the leader I am today!
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
In all honesty I think that this organization and it's growing community is perfect just the way they are!
