Do you like drawing? Here is a list of daily April art prompts. Make an art journal if you want, and do something different every day.

Alateen is a resource for anyone who is impacted by another person’s (family member, friend) drinking or drug use. They provide online chat meetings with other teens. You can find more information here.

SMART recovery is a resource for self-help for folks struggling with this. They also provide resources for those impacted by another’s drinking or drug use. Here is their website.

Here is a resource for harm reduction/factual information on drug use and sexual consent.

Bit of a long one ahead:

Like Poetry? Want LA credit? Why not celebrate national poetry month? Here are 30 ways to do that. Or, why not do NaPoWriMo [National Poetry Writing Month] by writing a poem per day? Here is their website, here is a podcast talking about poetry, and here is a poetry channel on YouTube

“What is Na/GloPoWriMo? It’s simple — it’s just the month of April, but as experienced by people all over the world who commit to writing a poem every day for the whole month. That’s 30 poems apiece. They don’t have to be long, they don’t have to be “good” (whatever that means) — they just have to be written!

How does it work? That’s simple, too — just write a poem every day from April 1 to April 30. There’s no requirement that you publish or share them. You can write them in your own notebook; you can keep them all to yourself. But if you do decide to post your efforts to a blog or other internet space this year, you can submit the link using our “Submit Your Site” form, and your website will show up in our “Participants’ Sites” list.

As in prior years, we’ll be posting an optional daily prompt to help you get inspired, as well as featuring a different participant each day. We’ll also be featuring a daily poetry resource — a link to an interesting essay, video, recording, or article that we hope will help you to get — and stay — excited about poetry. “
