“Cannabis And The Adolescent Brain” addresses the following topics:

  1. How the human brain develops as we grow up
  2. How compounds in cannabis interact with the human body
  3. How cannabis affects different regions of the brain
  4. Health risks of cannabis use on a developing brain
  5. Harm reduction strategies and support resources

The YMCA is committed to an environment that is barrier free. If a youth needs additional information or an alternate way to participate, please contact

YCAP takes a harm reduction approach toward recreational cannabis use. YCAP does not make value judgments regarding recreational cannabis use, rather seeks to minimize risks associated with cannabis use by providing the most accurate and unbiased information.

Thank you very much!
