Youth Council

The phrase, “Nothing about us without us” first used in the 1980’s regarding disability rights guides our prevention work today. Our Youth Council reflects the rich diversity of our community and builds connections and relationships across every sector.

Our youth collaborate with our adult coalition to plan and implement evidence-based prevention strategies. Through their work our youth are doing, learning, advocating, and creating a brighter future for our community!
