Through the marijuana prevention grant, PREVENT! created the Youth Now Prevention Initiative, the Weed Can Wait campaign, Cannabis Conversations and Making The Connection Toolkit. PREVENT! hosted the fifth Teens Care Too youth summit at Clark College in partnership with STASHA. During 2016, PREVENT! convened regional principals for the Principals Breakfast with Jim Sporleder, a trauma informed school advocate. PREVENT! also hosted two Drug Take Back Events at four locations, collecting 3654 pounds of pills. PREVENT! received two awards this year: The Public Health Community Award and The Exemplary Coalition Award at the Youth Summit in Yakima, WA.
