Community Service Mentoring Project
LifeSmarts participants have an exciting community service opportunity: to become over-the-counter (OTC) medicine safety mentors. The project promotes safe medicine storage, safe use of OTC medicine, and understanding the Drug Facts label. High school students demonstrate leadership by teaching 5th and 6th graders about medicine safety. The lesson is easy to adapt to classroom, club, and community settings.
