Day One Reminds SGV residents to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo Safely!
Over the last few years, in partnership with the Rethinking Alcohol and other Drugs (RAD) Coalition, Day One has partnered with over 60 bars and restaurants throughout the San Gabriel Valley to offer free coasters and table tents with prevention messaging, reminding guests of the dangers and repercussions of driving under the influence. Since this project began, we have distributed over 15,000 coasters and nearly 3,500 table tents. We’ve also reached over 30,000 SGV residents via social media during drinking holidays. For Cinco de Mayo this year, a holiday that has become synonymous with imbibing alcoholic beverages while celebrating, Day One and RAD members visited bars and restaurants in 7 SGV cities: Covina, Glendora, El Monte, Pasadena, La Verne, Pomona, and Sierra Madre. We thank our partners in these SGV cities, and look forward to expanding our reach in the near future. Remember, if celebrating with drinks, Plan Ahead and Arrive Alive!
Project Sticker Shock Operations
This week Day One has partnered with eleven local liquor retailers to raise awareness of the spike in underage drinking during the Cinco de Mayo holiday. We want to give a special thanks to our local liquor retailers for allowing our interns and Youth Advocates to place alcohol prevention campaign materials at their stores. Special shoutout to Latin America Market, Argentina Market, M&S liquor, A-1 Liquor, All Star Liquor, Showcase Wine and Spirit, Mission Wine and Spirit, Lake Avenue Market, Alta-Dena Dairy, and Alta Dena Drive-In-Dairies for your leadership and helping reduce youth access to alcohol and reinforce safe retail practices. Project Sticker Shock Interns and our Youth Advocates placed 10 campaign posters and 1,000 warning stickers on beer, alco-pops, and other alcohol multipacks to help remind adults that it is illegal to purchase or provide alcohol to anyone under the age of 21. Our Project Sticker Shock Interns and Youth Advocates plan to continue working with local alcohol retailers to prevent underage drinking and help promote safe drinking practices during major drinking holidays.

Life Skills Mentorship Program
We want to give a big thanks to Pasadena Unified School District for partnering with Day One to implement the Life Skills Mentorship Program at Washington STEAM Multilingual Academy, McKinley Middle School, and Sierra Madre Middle School for 12 weeks. The Life Skills Mentorship Program is a unique learning experience where we believe that every student has the right to achieve their full potential. Our intention is to provide a safe, supportive environment, built on high expectations that can inspire a student to thrive. A place where students will build their confidence and start to believe that they can and will succeed. Through this program, students will learn social-emotional learning (SEL) skills. These SEL skills are designed to teach students the necessary skills to resist social (peer) pressures, develop greater self-esteem and self-confidence, and enhance their decision-making and problem-solving skills. Our goal is to improve school success, increase academic confidence, motivation, and social skills, and build personal connections. We hope to implement this program again in the next academic school year 2022-2023 to connect and give other students the opportunity to join this amazing program!
Free Bike Repair Workshops Will Continue to the End of May!
Our free bike repair workshops are still ongoing and will continue until the last full week of May. PUSD students can learn how to fix and maintain a bicycle twice a week at the La Pintoresca Teen Education Center. Not sure how to fix a flat tire or adjust your brakes, come to the teen center on Mondays and Wednesdays, 3-5 PM and we’ll show you how. There’s no registration or RSVP required. Bring your bike if you have one, but you don’t have to bring a bike to join the workshop and learn with us. Students who need community service hours can earn hours by helping to fix donated bikes. Participants are also eligible to win a bike. The teen center is located at 1415 N Raymond Ave, Pasadena, CA 91103 at La Pintoresca Park. Contact: email@example.com
Walking School Buses & Bike Trains Continue to the End of May
The Walking School Buses (WSB) and Bike Trains at Blair, Longfellow, Madison, Marshall, Muir, Washington ES and Washington MS are up and running and will continue until the end of May. Students at these schools are invited to join. Check our website at https://www.godayone.org/activetransportation for details. A walking school bus is a group of students walking to school together with adult supervision. A bike train is the same idea, but on bicycles. Students who walk or roll to school get some healthy physical activity, show up to school more alert and ready to learn, and help to save the planet by reducing greenhouse gas emissions that come from cars. This is part of our Safe Routes to School program with PUSD and Pasadena DOT. For more information, contact your school’s community advocate/assistant or firstname.lastname@example.org.
