Each week, CADCA has the opportunity to spotlight Coalitions in Action. Youth2Youth 4 Change, located in Beloit, Wisconsin, is another example of excellent work that is – as their tagline connotes – “making a difference for generations to come.”
These youth advocates utilize evidence-based, age-appropriate and interactive approaches which resonate with students. While the coalition is involved in many issues including tobacco control, alcohol and prescription drugs, one of its major concerns is youth marijuana use. The youth advocates have embraced this challenge and have implemented a training program that is making an impact.
