Youth & School-Based Programs

In-School & Youth Programs

The Prevention Council works with local school districts to offer programs, educational seminars and other sessions to help educate and inform children about the dangers of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. Programs are focused on helping young children and adolescents develop healthy lifestyles and coaching on positive decision-making skills that build character and highlight the benefits of living a drug- and alcohol-free lifestyle.
