We Value Our Youth.

THE BLACK RIVER AREA COMMUNITY COALITION

We're taking a proactive approach to preventing youth drug and alcohol use by raising awareness, building resilience, and strengthening resources within our community.

Research and Assessment

We compare local and regional data to understand, identify, and address the current substance use issues facing youth communities of Ludlow, Plymouth, Mount Holly and Chester.

Prevention Tools and Resources

We provide youth, parents, schools, towns, and community partners with access to tools that increase awareness, knowledge, and resource capacity around substance use issues.

Programs and Initiatives

We work with our partners to sponsor proactive, educational, and leadership programs aimed at developing protective factors and reducing high risk behaviors of our youth community.


Community Involvement

Our coalition is made up of individuals, organizations, and businesses that believe in our mission of empowering and mobilizing the community to collaborate on activities that support substance-free youth.
