Lamoille Valley youth use substances at a higher rate than the average Vermont youth and Vermont youth substance use is among the highest in the country. We can work together to change these numbers! Please join us for an afternoon of action planning to prevent and reduce youth substance use and increase the overall health and well-being of our youth. We welcome youth, parents, educators, and community partners to this action-oriented event!

Lunch and childcare provided. Please contact if you will need child care.

Lunch will include tacos from Caja Madera and a special celebration of the Vermont Department of Health’s 3-4-50 wellness initiative to promote health and reduce the risk of chronic disease in our community and our local Lamoille Valley 3-4-50 partners. We will have a raffle for those who complete a short survey that includes prizes that support 3-4-50 community wellness goals including an outdoor games package or local farm gift certificate.
