Professionals can play an important role in youth-focused prevention
Our coalitions host a variety of events where you can learn more about what's going on locally, and grow your skills around prevention. Preventing problem behaviors in youth benefits the entire community, and over time can help improve the local work force and reduce strain on taxpayer-funded agencies.
If you want to play a bigger role, you can join your local coalition. We're always seeking individuals to help out at work groups, events, and with special projects. Some employers choose to support their local CTC coalitions by letting their employees attend coalition meetings on work time.
