Volition Franklin participated in the statewide Parents Who Hose Lose the Most campaign in a variety of ways. Volition Youth conducted a sticker shock campaign at local alcohol retailer, Kwik Trip. Students placed over 400 Parents Who Host stickers on alcohol packaging to provide a visual reminder to people purchasing alcohol that they should not provide it to underage youth. The campaign was conducted in May when the prevalence of teen parties tends to be higher due to prom and graduation season. A handout was left at the checkout counter providing more detailed information about the campaign and how to host safe teen parties.
Volition Franklin also partnered with the Franklin Police Department to create a Parents Who Hose Lose the Most Public Service Announcement to be used on Volition Franklin social media as well as next year as movie previews in our local theater. The 50 second clip was produced and edited by two Franklin High School student volunteers.
Additionally, Volition Franklin obtained authorization from the City of Franklin Parks Commission to place a campaign yard sign at each of the City Parks. Signs were placed for three weeks spanning from May-June. A flyer regarding the role parents play in children’s choices was included in the Franklin city newsletter and distributed to all Franklin homes and businesses.
