Media Campaigns

Today’s youth are confronted by many challenging situations. Our media campaigns are created to educate, change social norms, and reduce youth substance use across the Northland. By taking a regional approach, these messages are able to reach a broad audience. Each campaign is developed using up-to-date information and current data. Campaigns include billboards, mailers, radio advertisements, YouTube advertisements, and Facebook content.
