There are many ways to become involved in the Coalition. Attending meetings and offering your ideas is one way. The Coalition meets approximately every two months. Meetings frequently feature engaging guest speakers.

Letting your friends and neighbors know about coalition activities, and encouraging them to attend through your personal networks is another way to be involved.

At this time, we have established two working committees that meet in between coalition meetings (please scroll down to learn more about these working committees). These are important ways to become involved and help make the coalition’s work successful.

Contribute your expertise

We need volunteers with specific interests and skills:

  • Designing Graphics and Communications Materials
  • Setting up Google Docs for community and coalition surveys
  • Maintaining a coalition newsletter (not writing articles, but administering it)
  • Computer Data entry (e.g., lists maintenance)
  • Create Social Media opportunities
  • Note taking for Coalition meetings
  • Professional work experience with substance abuse and mental health
  • Lived experience or a concerned citizen

Working Committees

Coalition Planning and Community Assessment - Works to plan the coalition’s major goals and objectives, and collects data (statistics and stories from the community) that will inform the development of our coalition’s priority strategies.

Activities Planning - Plans community-wide activities meant to increase awareness and skills and reduce stigma around youth substance abuse and mental illness.

The Core Stakeholder Group is tasked with creating and dissolving working committees.
