In honor of Youth Prevention Week from Oct. 7-11, Holbrook Cares will host Breaking Roadblocks, a first of its kind five-day program in town for Holbrook students in grades 6-12, at a number of locations.

The program, through a grant from the Greater Boston Health Alliance, will include five days of speakers, activities, and events  to support youth. Students, families, coaches, teachers and community members can attend. There will be prizes and raffles at each event.
