The Taney County ADAPT Youth Club is a way for youth in our county to get involved and have a voice in decision-making. Participants will have an opportunity to gain leadership skills, be a role model for their peers and make a difference in the communities throughout Taney County.

Conversations will be youth-led and the topics will be determined based on youth concerns.

COMMUNITY EVENTS

The coalition hosts a booth at several community events throughout the year and is always seeking volunteers. We are especially seeking youth volunteers to engage with community members during local events and share their enthusiasm for prevention with others! Contact us for upcoming opportunities to volunteer at our next community event.

SPEAKING TO POLICY MAKERS

The coalition works to strengthen policies that reduce youth access to substances and youth voices are essential to policy change. Whether through letters or in-person communication, we encourage youth to share their stories with law makers to support prevention efforts.
