Support prevention, health & wellness programs focused on youth

We are fundraising to reduce youth substance abuse

Teens today are dealing with stress, pressure and anxiety about their health and future — more than ever before.

  • Did you know that over half of teens in our community feel so overly stressed and anxious on a daily basis that they find it difficult to do their work, take care of things at home or get along with others? And, we know that teens may turn to and abuse substances as a way to take the pressure off or as a way to fit in and feel like they belong.
  • Teen substance use and abuse is a growing problem, and while many young people are making good choices and doing the right thing, we live in a 24/7, always connected, pressure-filled world, where teens need support now more than ever from their community.

We are the Youth Action Board (YAB) -- an inclusive, dynamic and diverse group of teen volunteers from 11 public and private high schools in the Birmingham and Bloomfield Hills community that bring about positive change for our peers. We work hard to support the BBCC's mission and to bring its vital prevention programs to our schools and community with a relatable teen point of view and focus.

Our goal is to provide teens with a positive voice and presence in the broader community on issues important to teens with a focus on substance abuse prevention, health and wellness.

The Birmingham Bloomfield Community Coalition (BBCC) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), organization that takes a research driven, youth-led approach to substance abuse prevention, health and wellness. BBCC and the YAB provide education, tools, activities, and support to help youth rise above life's challenges by making informed decisions about their safety, health and wellness, as well as encouraging adults to thoughtfully support them.
