Join the Cobb Alcohol Taskforce Youth Council!

MARIETTA, GA -- Wanted: One hundred middle and high school students who are passionate about ending the destructive act of teenage binge drinking.

The Cobb Alcohol Taskforce Youth Council is a movement, a youth-led movement. Never before has an issue required the guts and spirit of youth to move it forward; to shake the cages of communities everywhere; to make changes, rattle adults out of complacency, and rub the sleep out of politicians' eyes so they wake up to the problem of underage binge drinking, which affects thousands of young people every day.

The Take It Back Movement is about youth power, influence and brains -- multiplied! It's about imagining a better future, telling the truth, refusing censorship, staying on the edge, creating action and generating results.
