What is drug addiction really like for youth growing up in New Hampshire? Despite the best intentions of caring adults, the youth voice is so often prescribed, muted, or “toned down” from the reality of living as a young person in our country today.

“The Spark!,” a fresh and innovative new podcast, is a North Country Charter Academy student project focused on prevention, recovery, and change. These students are covering various topics on or related to drug use, in their own words. As difficult as listening to youth talk about the realities of facing addiction-related issues can be for adults, this podcast is not to be missed. It is real and it is now.

Please share widely and support the students providing a window into their world, as only they can tell it.
