Our Programs


YSUP (pronounced wise-up) Rowan’s coalition is made up of active, engaged community volunteers who are united in preventing youth substance use in Rowan County. Made up of members representing all sectors of the community, our coalition volunteers are essential to the success of YSUP Rowan’s goal of creating sustainable change.

Youth council

One of the most important parts of YSUP (pronounced wise-up) Rowan, our Youth Council is made of up local middle and high school students. The Youth Council takes YSUP’s mission to their schools, religious organizations, clubs, friends and families. They are the ones who put into action what YSUP is all about! Our youth develop creative and relevant drug-free campaigns, volunteer in our community, and model what it is to be a drug-free teen in Rowan County.

Young people are the real key to youth substance use prevention! In our YSUP Youth Council, kids from across the county come together to develop prevention programs to educate and inform their peers about the dangers of substance use. Click here to learn more about joining us!


Like we said, it takes a community to make real change in the area of youth substance use. We are available to present to your group and educate them about the issues facing Rowan County’s young people and are always looking for partners in our prevention efforts. We also welcome any community members or business representatives to attend our meetings and events. Please click here to learn about ways you can get involved.
