dc.description.abstract The Manhattan Area Risk Prevention Coalition (MARPC) is funded by a Drug Free Communities federal grant to prevent adolescents from using substances such as marijuana, prescription pills, tobacco, and alcohol. The primary focus of this project was substance use prevention in Manhattan, Kansas. The objectives of this applied practice experience were to become a contributing member of MARPC, to enhance the goals and vision of the group, to learn about risk prevention and research current scientific literature, to analyze the Kansas Communities That Care (KCTC) survey data, and to develop a sustainable film festival to raise awareness about the risks involved in youth substance use. The primary goals were to make sure that the film festival encouraged filmmakers to use reputable sources to support any quantifiable assertions and that all MARPC members had the opportunity to provide input and direction in the planning of the competition. en_US
