Marin Catholic is proud to be among the schools participating in Be the Influence (BTI) Marin, a community parent group which seeks to reduce the unacceptably high rates of teen alcohol, marijuana, and other drug use throughout Marin County.
Be the Influence has been adopted by a group of schools, including the five Tam Unified High School District schools, Branson, Marin Catholic, and San Domenico High School.
Join forces with other parents
Be the Influence Marin asks parents to use their best efforts to take a few key measures – such as hosting for-teens-only, supervised alcohol-free and drug-free parties, and networking with other parents in a collaborative effort. In doing so, the hope is that more families will feel empowered to do the same. Joining consists of electronically “signing” a simple Parent Commitment.
Contact other parents involved
Each parent who makes the BTI Commitment will receive a link to the Marin Catholic Parent Participant List generated by signups. Please note that our list will stay within the Marin Catholic community.
We encourage Marin Catholic families to consider joining Be the Influence and our growing community of concerned and proactive parents. Parenting teens is a challenging responsibility and our expectations, intentions, and behavior as adults are very important. With strong parent participation, successful and positive effects through might "be the influence" in teen’s lives with respect to alcohol, marijuana, and other drug use.
