The Easthampton Healthy Youth Coalition promotes healthy choices among young people while working to prevent youth substance use during the crucial years of brain development. The coalition encourages youth to make healthy decisions and promotes family engagement and community connections to increase resilience and bolster protective factors that help young people thrive and avoid risky behavior.
We believe that as a community working together, we can increase awareness, knowledge and compassion around the risks of youth substance use. The coalition fosters opportunities for positive youth activities and connections within our schools and other community institutions.
The coalition sits within the Easthampton Health Department, working with stakeholders from all sectors of the community at the table to promote a culture that will support young people.
Our mission: We work together to foster increased awareness, active youth and family engagement, and community involvement.
