Baraga County CTC

Our Vision: We want to create an inclusive environment for our youth that bonds together the families, schools and community. We envision a community in which the youth, families and schools work together to create a safe and healthy environment, instilling respect, life skills, increased community involvement and positive interaction promoting positive life decisions and decreased problem behaviors. 


 CTC helps communities prevent problems before they develop. 

About Communities That Care

CTC is evidence-based to help lower rates of youth problem behaviors, including:

substance use | violence | delinquency | school drop out | teen pregnancy | depression


Communities That Care (or CTC) guides communities through a five-phase change process using prevention science. Many communities that use the CTC process see dramatic reductions in levels of youth alcohol and tobacco use, crime and violence. 


We want to break the multi-generation cycles of depression, substance use, and other issues that keep our young people from flourishing. When healthier teens become healthier adults, every aspect of our communities improve!
