We are a new collective with fresh ideas and action plans.
The teen vaping epidemic of 2019 brought together an interdisciplinary group of stakeholders from the New Trier Township to create educational and prevention opportunities. We welcome community members regardless of their age, gender, race, or income level, to join us in accomplishing our goals.
Our goal is not to shame those who use substances legally. Our goal is to help our community foster healthy adolescent relationships; support prevention of alcohol, drug use and other risky behaviors; and provide programming to support education towards these goals.
We strive to build and sustain a safe and drug-free community in which our youth feel protected, confident, and empowered to make healthy choices. We want to transform the environment around our youth so that their mental health needs are supported and the drug-free choice is the easy choice.
