Youth to Youth serves many purposes in Central Ohio. Y2Y works to help promote Youth to Youth’s mission and educate their peers on the dangers of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.
Youth to Youth supports schools & community coalitions working on underage drinking and drug use, asset-building and creating positive school climate through consultation, speaking, training, presentations and conferences.
First Fridays, “Mindset Matters” is a program for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students that will focus on issues that middle school age youth are beginning to face such as: alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, prescription drug misuse, relationships, bullying, stress, anxiety, peer pressure, self-concept, community responsibility, etc.
