Youth Education Programs

The Northland Coalition works diligently to educate youth of the harms and dangers of drugs and alcohol use through evidence-based programs. The majority of our programs are free of charge or cost little to the schools or individuals involved. If you have any questions, or are interested in getting your child or school involved, please contact Sherri Miller at 816-965-1018 or sherrim@tri-countymhs.org.

Northland Youth Leadership:

Thursday, October 9th 2019 9am-1:30pm (Lunch is provided).  $15 per participant.  Location: Pleasant Valley Baptist Church.  This one-day opportunity is available to teens and adults who are active leaders in their schools, athletic teams and communities.  Here they will actively enrich their leadership skills and be better equipped to run meetings, create strategic plans, and lead their peers.  All students in grades 9-12, are encouraged to attend. More information to come.

Social Norming:
Throughout the year, social norming campaigns are offered at local elementary and middle schools.  Social norming campaigns are an evidenced-based strategy that corrects misconceptions so that the actual, healthy norm can positively influence behavior in the target population.

The cost is $20 per person. Grab your friends and form a team!! You can sign up at the Youth With Vision Website or for more information, contact Sherri Miller. All proceeds benefit Youth With Vision, a student leadership organization focused on the prevention of teen alcohol and drug use.
