Gambling Awareness Program

Did you know?

You are more likely to get struck by lightening then to hit the lottery.

There are tons of statistics just like these that illustrate the reasons why gambling can be a risky behavior, especially for young people.  Gambling and winning can give individuals the same kind of “high” as using drugs and alcohol.  It’s important for parents and young people to be aware of the risks and gamble responsibly.
