L. Ron Hubbard Study Technology: Effective Learning and Education

About 6 years ago the daughter of a friend of mine was struggling with her move to secondary education.

She knew about L. Ron Hubbard's Study Technology and decided to move all her 3 kids to a school that did this in the UK.

The improvement was incredible! The school did an evaluation of them and gave them a tailor made program to handle earlier troubles with their studies. Then they took them to a whole new level!!!

If you want to know more how this works see here .

Scientology Church Says San Diego is “Drug-Free Marshals Territory”

Trying to handle the drug problem when a person is dependant on drugs is so expensive and so hard on society and the individual and his or her family.

While it absolutely needs to be done, the work that is being done by groups who work with youngsters to encourage them to stay away from drugs is extremely valuable.

I've spoken before about the work my church does to provide drug education, but I found this cute story on the Scientology anti-drug web site.

The Drug Free Marshals is a program aimed at helping children make sane decisions about their future. As drug abuse affects kids at younger and younger ages, I believe the value of this program, which gets to kids first, is enormous.

The San Diego Drug-Free Marshals attend fairs and other community events and pass out drug-information booklets to let kids know the truth about drugs.

Like the marshals of the Wild West, who were trusted to maintain the safety and security of their territories, the Drug-Free Marshals keep their neighborhoods safe for kids, through informing them of the harmful effects of drugs.

The Church of Scientology of San Diego, provides booklets on the effects of marijuana, heroin, ecstasy and cocaine that provide real examples of the effects of these drugs and are written in language a kid can relate to. Since its inception in 1993, kids from all over the world have taken the Drug-Free Marshals’ pledge that stresses being informed, helping others and setting a good example for other youth. >> more

Drug-Free Down Under

I found this great story today on the Scientology Effective Solutions web site.

The Drug-Free Ambassadors Sydney, a Scientology-sponsored anti-drug group is working to help turn the tide against illegal drug use:

"In Parramatta, Australia, a city in the Sydney metropolitan area, a
group of young people called the Drug-Free Ambassadors celebrated
Australia Day this year by offering a helping hand to the youth of the
area, educating them on the truth about drugs and encouraging them to
pledge to be drug free.

Amid the fireworks and entertainment, including a special appearance

by Australian Idol Guy Sebastian, these youngsters spread the word to
thousands of residents that “drug free is the way to be!”

What motivates these youth to spend the holiday helping their peers

is information from the Bureau of Crimes Statistics showing that
possession or use of marijuana in Parramatta increased by 100% between the years 2000 and 2004. With Ecstasy use also on the increase, the Drug Free Ambassadors are concentrating on spreading the word about these two drugs."
