The Idaho Meth Project is composed of an amazing group of people. Over the last few years they have contributed tremendously to the communities and primarily to the youth of the state. As chairman of the Meridian Mayors Anti-Drug Coalition, I have seen first hand much of their work. We have also worked collaboratively with them on several project and they have been a great contributor to our coalition. The fight against drugs and for the welfare of our children is far from over and thank goodness we have great non-profits like the Idaho Meth Project out there.

My work with the Idaho Meth Project has been completely life changing! As a 2nd year Teen Advisory Council member, the opportunities I have been given are experiences that I could never find anywhere else. I've been able to work with staff, other volunteers, and drug free personnel from all over the state, and I contribute it to the confidence and strength that I have as a leader now. The work done by IMP is life changing, not just for the people that get the opportunity to work with them, but also for the students, parents, and young adults that are educated and inspired by presentations and awareness events all over the state. The Idaho Meth Project has helped me shape where I want to go with my life and helped me form a strong personal message in my leadership philosophy, and is overall a wonderful organization!

I love great Nonprofit organizations that improve awareness of the dangers of drugs &/or alcohol. Educating our youth and adults will give them knowledge to avoid the horrible addiction of Meth. I have been involved thru a loved one who has helped, thru her career, many trying to get off Meth and get their lives and their own children back in their lives. The Idaho Meth Project is very admirable and a wonderful program. Thanks to all involved in this Project!

This project has made a huge positive impact on our communities throughout the entire state of Idaho. More teens are turning from drugs, and beginning to understand there is hope for everyone, regardless of past behavior. I have seen the teens in my own community become more social, more open, and clean, to take charge of their own lives. Wonderful program! Keep it up!

This is a societal challenge that needs a larger footprint in our state. The Idaho Meth Project is doing a fantastic job of reaching people from all backgrounds and all ages--urban communities to small town arenas. Kudos to all of the team members who are hitting this issue head on and making our future brighter in Idaho!

The Idaho Meth Project does an amazing job at spreading the message of the danger of not only the general use of meth, but particularly first time use. They do an AMAZING job at engaging teens from throughout the state in activities to teach them the negative effects of meth use as well as spreading the concept and message of prevention in our community. I strongly believe Idaho teenagers are positively impacted from the strong campaign message that the Idaho Meth Project communicates. They are given the opportunity to find their voice and be a positive influence in the lives of their friends, classmates and families. Thank you IMP for all the great work and dedication to such an important cause!

This past year I was invited to participate in a project, headed by 'Cyn Reneau', to give the youth in the state of Idaho a means to occupy their time in a more positive way. This event included, not only a place for the younger generation to legally meet, but also included snacks, drinks, 'Live' entertainment, and 'free give away' items with the premise Logo of.... METH... NOT EVEN ONCE'.

As a touring & traveling musician, I've had the opportunity to see many different areas of the States, observing many different cultures, but the one thing that most have in common is the younger generation getting involved in the use of Meth due to the lack of more constructive activities to lead them in a manner of growing up to help the community in which they live and better their own lives.

In my belief, this project had kept many of the youth off the streets, (so to say) and a very positive notion that, for one.. we do care about them & their future, and secondly, that there are better and more constructive ways to spend their time with their peers.

In closing, I support all efforts to keep this project alive and going, And especially want to thank 'Cyn Reneau' for all her dedication and selfless efforts to pave a better road for younger generations to come!

Sincerely, Brian Ward

I'm the Program Chair for Criminal Justice at Broadview University. I'm also a reserve police officer for the Parma. I have worked with the Idaho Meth Project on several occasions and have to say it is one of the best programs that I have seen to help kids stay away from Meth. This project also helps recovering addicts by allowing them to give back and pass the message on. It is really an honor to work with such a great program and Cyn is truly the best at what she does.

Growing up I can remember seeing the billboards and commercials on TV about the meth project. Now as an adult I am exited to continue to see the progress of the campaign.

This organization does important work to help Idahoans. Meth leads to tragic results for those who make the decision to use it and eventually to anyone around them. It destroys relationships, tears apart families, and it ruins the lives of both users and innocent bystanders. Education for prevention is the only realistic cure, and we are fortunate to have the Idaho Meth Project and their tireless staff and volunteers to give Idaho a fighting chance. As an Idahoan, I recognize your efforts and I thank you.

I PERSONALLY KNOW PEOPLE WHO HAVE TOLD THEIR STORIES AND AM AMAZED AT HOW THERE LIFE WAS CHANGED FROM THE LOWS TO THE LIFE CHANGES AFTER GETTING OFF THE DRUGS. I FEEL THIS IS A PROGRAM THAT SHOULD HAVE THE SUPPORT OF THE ENTIRE STATE.

My name is Shane Anderson and i am a volunteer with the meth project. I freely give my time telling my own personal story in schools around the treasure valley. I lost my son to drug abuse and the Meth Project has givin me hope that my story can change the lives of young people everywhere. Getting the Not Even Once message out there is my best contribution. . . I could not save my own child but through The Meth Project maybe i can save someone elses. . .

The Idaho Meth Project is a valuable and vital resource in our great state of Idaho! I have been to many of their functions and have seen firsthand the direct impact they have made in many peoples lives and in our community as a whole. I commend them on their amazing efforts and continuation of helping those with need and desire to get off of meth more importantly, prevent our youth from even trying it in the first place. Awareness is key and the IMP does exemplary work in bringing that awareness to light so that we as parents or loved ones we can assist in beating this horrible problem. Bravo IMP!!! Keep up the great work!!!

I have been involved with the Idaho Meth Project for several years. They work tiredlessly on their mission of teaching "Not Even Once" to our local communities. They reach out and touch lives daily. This is a very worth while cause.
