Creating Safer Spaces

We encourage changes to the physical environment that reduce risk factors for youth substance use.

What We Do:

  • Host the annual Youth Photovoice Contest, which invites local youth to promote healthy choices, reimagine public spaces, and celebrate community through photography
  • Educate policymakers and community members on the benefits of substance-free public spaces and community events
  • Implement prom and graduation alcohol Sticker Shock campaigns with local retailers to discourage social hosting and buying alcohol for minors
  • Coordinate with Department of Liquor Control on Responsible Beverage Server Trainings, Retailer Recognition, and Compliance Checks
  • Collaborate with local retailers of CBD, marijuana, and tobacco paraphernalia around safe storage practices
