Youth Coalition


Greetings!  Here you will find various opportunities for youth to become involved in leadership opportunities with guidance from adult mentors.  Read below to see what other youth throughout Adams County are doing to help our communities be safe and drug free!

CFY Youth Coalition


In 2009, Collaborating For Youth facilitated the "coming together" of youth from across Adams County who want to connect with other youth striving to live above the influence to create positive change in our communities.


Youth Coalition members are the YOUTH VOICE of Collaborating For Youth -- a coalition working to reduce substance abuse and create a healthy environment for youth in Adams County. 


Supported by a team of adult mentors, the Youth Coalition carries out strategies working closely with the community to reduce underage drinking and prevent medicine abuse.


Initial training occurs at a 5-day/4-night Youth Leadership Camp, sponsored by Collaborating For Youth and conducted in the last week of June of each year.  CFY offers Youth Coalition members various training opportunities to participate in throughout the year.
