MONROE - High school students from Albany, Argyle, Brodhead, Monticello, New Glarus and Juda will be participating in the "Passport to Reality" Program from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 23 at the Monroe YMCA. "Passport to Reality" allows youth to learn the dangers of getting involved in potentially risky and dangerous situations they may encounter throughout their middle and high school years.Sponsored by the Green County United Prevention Professional's for Youth (aka G.U.P.P.Y), the program will have many local professionals to help play the parts of the event stations.Simulated events involve topics such as drugs, alcohol, and tobacco issues; dating and relationships; and the financial consequences of poor decisions. The goal of the game is to encourage positive choices in the students' real-life futures.
