Mission:  Pulling Together is a substance abuse prevention coalition that coordinates initiatives and family resources to empower youth to choose a substance free lifestyle through collaboration of agencies and program leadership.


The Pulling Together Coalition is developing a youth-led coalition.  Youth, who participate in this coalition, will receive training, develop and implement their own action plan and build leadership skills by engaging with the community to prevent and reduce youth substance use.  Some examples of action plan items are offering fun substance free activities/events for youth, creating a media campaign (podcast, videos, etc.), handing out flyers at sport events, making presentations in classrooms, community organizations and/or government officials.
