Join the Youth Council

The Youth Council is always working on an engaging and fun project to help reduce youth substance use in Rowan County. We work together through all stages of planning, designing, creating, and carrying out our projects, to make sure that they are truly peer to peer prevention efforts. We believe that projects and messages that come from our own voices and ideas are the most effective way to reach our peers.
