Scientology Network’s VOICES FOR HUMANITY, the weekly series presenting heroic change makers from a variety of faiths, cultures and nations, working to uplift their communities, announces a new episode featuring the work of anti-drug activist Darren Tessitore.
VOICES FOR HUMANITY airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the Scientology Network.
By the time he was 15 years old, Darren Tessitore attended a succession of funerals for close friends—seven in all—who lost their lives to drug-related causes. Worried about the prevalence of drugs in schools as his three daughters reached their teens, he made it his personal mission to educate as many kids as possible on the dangers of drugs and has since helped educate millions across the nation.
Darren Tessitore was born in Boston,
Massachusetts, and experienced the devastating effects of drug use while still
in his early teens. Convinced that he, and his close friends who died
drug-related deaths, would not have so willfully used drugs if they had been
fully aware of the dangers drugs posed, Darren dedicated himself to teaching
kids about the dangers of drugs as a preventative measure. He discovered the
Foundation for a Drug-Free World’s Truth About Drugs program and advocated its
use—first in high school driver’s education programs, with schools across the
country clamoring for the materials and information he presented, and
subsequently in partnership with police-affiliated school resource officers.
Through seminars, presentations and the educational materials he has
distributed, Darren has reached an estimated 3.1 million students with the
truth about drugs.
Darren Tessitore is currently working with the Driving School Association of the Americas (DSAA) and the American Driver and Traffic
Safety Education Association (ADTSEA), along with other nationwide organizations, to
save young lives by educating them on the dangers of drug abuse.
