Club B.A.D.D.D. is good

In Tucson, Ariz., Gabriella Contreras decided to wage war on the drugs and violence that invaded her neighborhood by encouraging fellow students to choose safe extracurricular activities. It started small, with a handful of teens and signs that read "Stop the Violence." But soon her efforts grew into a 100-member service organization called Club B.A.D.D.D. (Be Alert, Don't Do Drugs). It was such a success that she now helps other teens start similar clubs in their communities.
