WE ARE a group of community members representing: Youth, parents, schools, law enforcement, youth-serving organizations, the faith-based community, substance misuse treatment agencies, local government, healthcare, businesses, media, civic/volunteer groups.
OUR MISSION is to create healthy communities by reducing substance misuse.
The Lower Township Healthy Youth Coalition brings together community members from all walks of life to create and promote alcohol, tobacco, and drug-free environment for the youth of Lower Township. The members include educators, law enforcement, parents, youth faith leaders, and businesses. The coalition's mission is to plan and implement strategies to prevent and reduce youth substance misuse and its associated consequences that focus specifically in the Lower Township community.
Incorruptible.US aims to educate students, parents, teachers, and members of Cape May County about the dangers of BIG Tobacco and the ever-growing vaping epidemic that is affecting so many individuals.
The group is open to any high school-aged student in Cape May County that are motivated and passionate about making a difference. The group meets monthly to discuss ideas and collaborate on projects that focus on improving health and awareness while also attending fun group activities. Students who are interested in joining should reach out to Alana at firstname.lastname@example.org.
