Drug Free Clubs of America

Heather McGowan - Program Director

When presented with the idea of Drug Free Clubs of America, I knew right away that it was a program that I wanted to be a part of.  After years of coaching a high school dance team, the thought of working with students and rewarding them for making healthy choices was something I couldn't pass up. 

As my responsibilities in DFCA grew, I realized that it was quickly becoming something that combined all of my career goals:  among those, working with students, being creative and learning new things every day.  What I didn't anticipate was the personal satisfaction I would gain by being a part of the strategy that students use to make the choice to remain drug-free.  Each day brings something new to Drug Free Clubs of America, and each day reaffirms my desire to make Drug Free Clubs of America a logical drug prevention tool, not only for schools, but for families and communities as well.
