Our goal is to prevent and reduce youth underage drinking, marijuana use and prescription drug misuse. We empower youth to be leaders and implement proven prevention strategies to support healthy lifestyles free of the problems associated with alcohol, tobacco and drug use.
Our current work includes:
- Supporting and promoting enforcement of underage drinking laws;
- Educating local businesses on best practices related to alcohol and marijuana sales and promotion;
- Providing substance use prevention resources and training for teachers, providers and other caregivers; and,
- Facilitating parent discussions and networking about substance use prevention in the home.
