Youthworks Services

Activities & Presentations

Youthworks services address the State’s four prevention priorities: underage alcohol use, tobacco and nicotine products use, marijuana and other cannabinoids use, and prescription drug misuse.

Positive Alternatives provide fun, challenging, and structured activities with supervision so people have constructive and healthy ways to enjoy free time and learn skills. These alcohol and drug-free activities are provided with the intent to help people stay away from situations that encourage the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.

Alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD) Presentations are conducted as standalone, age-appropriate activities that increase knowledge or create awareness of the state’s four prevention priorities.

Community-Based Education and Mobilization Activities strengthen resources to prevent substance use and misuse in the community. Such activities include participation in community health fairs, parent-teacher nights, school board meetings, and other related community-based activities.

Our staff may visit your site once, or as often as once a month, to provide this educational service. For more information or to schedule a presentation or alternative activity, contact Benita Fernandez at benita.fernandez@bacoda.org or 800-510-3111.
