Sponsor a Local Prevention Club 
PREVENT! supports school-based prevention clubs.  Prevention clubs provide youth with the opportunity to conduct prevention education with their peers and community.  Clubs provide healthy and positive opportunities for youth involvement and increased awareness about substance abuse.

Help support the program by donating money to fund events, supplies, and activities or become a mentoring agency and sponsor a prevention club, making a commitment to work on community projects together.  

"I have extreme gratitude for the grant money you sent my way last year. I am looking so forward to PREVENT! support for monthly activities for my prevention club! I just feel like that's really going to be helpful!"
