Support the great prevention work of the Valley Youth Coalition – You may choose to hit the donate button today!
No doubt you’ve seen the recent headlines regarding youth substance abuse, especially the opioid epidemic and the rise of e-cigarette/vaping. Our local youth are at risk and need your support!
During the past thirteen years, the Coalition has made a measurable impact on the health of youth and families in our Valley. Significant reductions have been made in the use of alcohol, marijuana, nicotine, and abuse of prescription drugs by our adolescents and teens. Additionally, the Coalition has been addressing the issues underlying youth alcohol and drug use including bullying, campus safety, academic performance, family dysfunction and mental health issues. The Coalition underwrites academic support, mentoring, pro social messaging, life skills training and leadership development activities. Most recently, the Coalition was successful in advocating for a SMOKE FREE SOLVANG!
The Coalition remains committed to protecting the youth and families in our community from the ravages of substance abuse and addiction but we need your support to do so. We have secured a very competitive Santa Barbara County grant to fund much of our work but must raise an additional $15,000 in local gifts to continue our successful work at current levels.
