Professionals can play an important role in youth-focused prevention

Spread the Word

One easy way you can get involved with youth-focused prevention is to learn about your local coalitions and resources, and let others know about them. Share information on social media, with your professional network, and with clients when appropriate. Getting the word out can change our community.

Continuing Education

Our coalitions host a variety of events where you can learn more about what's going on locally, and grow your skills around prevention. Preventing problem behaviors in youth benefits the entire community, and over time can help improve the local work force and reduce strain on taxpayer-funded agencies.

Share Your Skills

If you want to play a bigger role, you can join your local coalition. We're always seeking individuals to help out at work groups, events, and with special projects. Some employers choose to support their local CTC coalitions by letting their employees attend coalition meetings on work time.
