The Chippewa Valley Coalition for Youth and Families joins School and Community in promoting safe, healthy and drug free youth and supporting families. We work to secure the future of our youth and our community by reducing
youth use of alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs, youth prescription drug abuse, and preventing youth suicide.
MORE ABOUT US:
The Coalition includes representatives of all sectors of the community, including
parents, youth, Chippewa Valley Schools staff, law enforcement, government, business, the medical community, and 20 community and youth serving agencies. The voice and talents of our youth are provided by our Coalition Teen Councils, active student groups at Chippewa Valley and Dakota High Schools. We network
with 22 local churches through the Interfaith/Chippewa Valley Partnership. We create prevention initiatives and video and print materials that are shared with coalitions and other groups in Macomb County and beyond.
The Chippewa Valley Coalition for Youth and Families, which serves the
geographic area of Chippewa Valley Schools and includes parts of Clinton and Macomb Townships, is a federal Drug Free Communities Grantee.
Coalition efforts are also supported by donations and fundraising.
