EYPC and Local Alcohol Policy Change: The Right Partnership for You! 

Is your community considering strengthening your local environment to reduce alcohol misuse through policy change? If so, engaging your local youth in your efforts with the support of Engaging Youth for Positive Change (EYPC) can be a key component of success!  

EYPC, a youth-oriented policy change curriculum, carefully guides youth through the process of getting a local alcohol policy passed in their community. During EYPC, youth identify a problem and a policy solution, collect and analyze data, and present to local leaders, giving young people the skills, confidence, and experience they need to become effective advocates for positive social change.
