What We Do:
& Goals

The Coalition has three overarching goals to help us make our vision a reality:

1. Decrease youth misuse of substances including alcohol, marijuana, electronic vapor products, and prescription drugs by implementing evidence-based prevention strategies in the community setting.

2. Advance the Whole School, Community, Child (WSCC) approach, as well as other prevention programs/initiatives in the community that advance the health and well-being of our youth.

3. Advance Restorative Practice principles across the Douglas County community in three key areas:

  • Expand alternatives to suspension and restorative justice programs in schools, the judicial system, and the broader community.

  • Connect youth to safe peer-oriented programs/activities that build skills, provide meaningful opportunities, build community, and offer tangible recognition.

  • Strengthen youth and adult relationships, as well as develop a stronger sense of community across Douglas County.
