||The Church of Scientology and Dianetics Centrum Kosice established in January 2008 two different Volunteer Minister groups in Kosice: one of them works in crisis prevention and disaster response (civil protection). This group is registered as such by the regional office of the government of the Slovak Republic and is part of the official European Union 112 emergency response database in the Kosice region. The second group is concerned with drug education lectures mainly in local schools. (Some of the members are specialists trained in drug rehabilitation as well, however the group is focused solely on drug prevention). During the last two months they have delivered preventive drug education lectures in 19 different schools to over 2100 students and distributed 15800 anti-drug booklets (sponsored by the Chrch of Scientology). They have received 10 endorsements form local schools and
generally this group is regarded by the teachers as the best anti-drug lecturer group in the Kosice region. Additional activity the group is involved in is training any new volunteers on the skills necessary to hold anti-drug lectures. The Volunteer Minister group offers its services to everybody in the wider Kosice region free of charge.
