BUILDING A BABES COMMUNITY
BABES in the Community is designed to capture the attention, imagination and creativity of the total community. The BABES Community Action Plan was developed to interact with the entire community, individuals, families, social and religious organizations, schools, businesses and government. In an effort to combat substance abuse. The objective is to create a BABES Community: A group of people living, loving and working together to create an environment where all, especially children, feel safe, healthy, loved and protected from substance abuse.
The plan is based on a concept of community mobilization through the development of workable target areas and a sense of affiliation. With a carefully designed seven step program, sensitivity training and technical assistance and direction from BABESWORLD staff, the Action Plan takes the BABES ideology beyond the child and family and engages the entire community In the process of seeking effective solutions. Youth then experience their community engaged In a comprehensive effort to fight substance abuse.
