"Perks."
Pros: I love the freedom of my position. I am able to teach our teens about prevention, life skills, goals and planning for the future and other information about drugs and alcohol. Every lesson I give I am able to take on as a creative or structured as I want--Which I think is great for our teens because it also gives them the freedoms to interact and not be scared to get a right or wrong answer like a school setting.
