Optional New Member Orientation (informal) each month from 2:30-3:30pm before the meeting begins.
Teens and caring adults are invited to join the Youth Empowerment Project (or YEP!).
Starting September 2019, volunteers will join together as equal partners to build healthy relationships with positive role models, develop leadership skills like public speaking and advocacy, and implement local prevention projects or campaigns. This committee merges two previous meetings, the former Youth Substance Abuse Prevention Committee and our youth advisory committee – now YEP!
YEP is the same committee that brought you the Cannabis Conversations Toolkit, Secure Your Cannabis campaign and Youth Now initiative but now with a new name and vision created intentionally and strategically by youth leaders.
We hope you’ll join us and spread the word to any youth or kind, passionate adults ready to make Clark County a more empowered, positive and resilient place to live and grow.
