Our youth need education, tools and support to rise above life's challenges of stress, drugs, anxiety, alcohol, and other destructive behaviors
Not a day goes by without an article, tweet, or news outlet discussing the opioid or vaping epidemics or sharing information about the resulting tragedy and heartache that goes with it. And, addiction is evident in all communities -- there are no exceptions, just different forms of denial.
If we are to get in front of this and other epidemics, we need to focus on proven prevention efforts to get ahead of the continuing cycle.
Did you know that the Birmingham Bloomfield Community Coalition (BBCC) and its Youth Action Board (YAB) are in the forefront of addressing and preventing these and other issues in our community with a focus on youth?
By focusing on prevention, health & wellness, BBCC and the YAB take a research-driven, evidenced-based approach with their programs and activities focused on youth and the adults who support our young people.
BBCC and the YAB ..
Prevention efforts are needed now more than ever and we simply cannot do this work without your financial support. It truly takes a village to raise our children.
Please note: All funds raised go directly to BBCC and the Youth Action Board's programs and services.
