Who We Are
Our Vision: The Northland communities will be healthy and safe environments in which to raise children.
Our Mission: Through community involvement, leadership, and the sharing of resources, the Northland Coalition promotes and encourages the positive, healthy, and safe lifestyle decisions of our youth.
The coalition is committed to preventing and reducing youth substance use among our youth. We develop programs and campaigns at a regional level that send a unified message: youth can reach their full potential in safe, healthy, and drug-free communities.
The Northland Coalition meets monthly to collaborate on addressing current trends and area needs in relation to youth substance use prevention. Membership is open to anyone concerned about the health and well-being of youth.
