Natural High | Calling All Students
Do you want to bring the Natural High message to your school and watch your celebrity heroes talk about choosing their natural high over drugs in your class? - You can! By asking your teacher to join the Natural High Education Network.
Step One: Tell your teacher about the Natural High DVD Series and why it matters to you. You can even have them preview interviews of naturally high celebs Terry Kennedy and Lauren Conrad on NaturalHigh.TV.
Step Two: Ask your teacher to join the Education Network and let them know by joining, they will receive our latest DVD, Natural High 5, which contains Natural High resources such as worksheets, lesson plans and curriculum, also at no cost. They can join by filling out the Education Network form on NaturalHigh.Org/Join.
Step Three: Follow up with your teacher; now that they are familiar with the Natural High program ask them to host their own Natural High Photo Booth. The teacher should ask each student to make a “My Natural High is…” poster (see examples in the right hand column). The teacher can take a photo of their students holding up their Natural High posters and send it to us at, email@example.com. We will post the photos on our Facebook page where students will be able to view and tag their photos.
Welcome Starla Beilhart
In part of welcoming the Natural High Street Team. Each member was asked to share their story and interest in spreading the Natural High message. Below is a story from Starla Beilhart.
A little about me…my name is Starla and I’m from San Diego, CA but I live in Denver, CO for college. My natural highs are music, art, my family, and my friends. I found out about Natural High from Allura Garis, Youth Engagement Coordinator. I think this is a great nonprofit and I’m so glad to be part of it. I really hope we can bring Natural High to Colorado.
My story…throughout high school, I hung out with the crowd that always wanted to go party and I just tagged along. I spent a lot of nights driving my friends home because they were too messed up to drive themselves. Also, cleaning up their mess from getting sick and took care of them throughout the night. After awhile, I started to do it myself. Not a lot, but I still did. Yes I think it was a mistake, but that’s life. We have to learn from our mistakes. I realized that wasn’t the life for me and I needed a change. Once I graduated high school, I distanced myself from the party scene and became friends with people who weren’t into any of that and had the same interests as me. My current friends and I have so much fun without drugs or alcohol. I’m very happy with my life right now because I don’t have to worry about any of that stuff anymore. Also, my cousin just had a baby and he’s been growing up around me. I want him to know that you don’t have to do drugs or drink to be cool. I want him to look up to me for not doing that and I want him to come to me if he is in any situation that would pressure him into doing that stuff. Pressure is the main problem these days and I wish that can change. Changing myself was the best decision. I have a great job and I’m doing well in school. I know that Natural High is going to spread far and it is going to make a HUGE difference in peoples’ lives!
