AIR Members, Noelle and Amy speaking at a local schools about recovery.
Nick speaking to the parents at Charles DeWolf Middle School on Old Tappan
"Last year our PTO had the privilege of inviting AIR to speak to our parents and their students. The turnout was beyond our expectations, and the speakers and the message incredibly received. In our audience were students from 7-12 grade that choose to come with their parents to hear the testimonials of these young adult. After the recovering Alumni spoke, we asked the students how this impacted them. Their feedback was not only invaluable but impactful, they felt like the speakers were relatable. They said “I could see you walking down the hallway next to me”, “You look like you could be my friend”."

Breathing New Life into Recovery and Community
"Thanks Raheem for spending two evening with our parents sharing your story. We were impressed with your candidness in telling it like it is about the prom and your strong words to parents about having those uncomfortable conversations. Please let us know if you are available to speak to our students attending Jr. Prom."
