Our Critical Work.

We believe our work with youth is some of the most critical work we do at Prevention First. We work directly with youth, teachers, advisors, parents, SROs, local law enforcement, driver's ed facilitators, coalitions, and other community members who have an important role in our youth's lives. 

At Preventions First's Youth Prevention Resource Center, we apply a holistic approach in all that we do, ensuring that youth voices are represented and respected. We invest significant resources to be responsive to the needs of our youth and support healthy decision-making, supporting both those who work with youth and the youth themselves.

The Youth Prevention Resource Center offers on-site and virtual training, webinars, tip sheets, and resources on various topics and issues facing youth today. Visit our latest Annual Report.

Teens Are Our Partners.

We consider youth to be experts on their peers and, as such, an integral part of the work we do. The YPRC facilitates a group of young people known as our Student Advisory Board (SAB). SAB members are selected through an application process and play an active role in developing resources and identifying solutions to the issues facing their peers. They undergo training and have opportunities to speak with and to various stakeholders that impact our shared work.
