INITIATIVES

YOUTH IN ACTION   (YIA)

 

Youth in Action is a student-led, adult-guided program that empowers teens to ​make a difference on their campus and among their peers by identifying issues  and developing and implementing strategies to address those issues. This year, the Palmetto High School YIA team is addressing vaping on campus and supporting good mental health.  Next year, we plan to add teams from  Manatee School for the Arts and Parrish Community High School!

DRUG FREE YOUTH (DFY)

Drug Free Youth is a community-wide incentive program for students ages 13-18 who are already making healthy choices and staying away from  alcohol and other drugs. Members demonstrate their commitment by submitting to a urine drug screen and then enjoy discounts on food, activities, and merchandise from retailers throughout Manatee County!

SECURE MONITOR DISPOSE

 

PLEASE!! Do not leave unused or expired Rx medications in your home! Two thirds of teens who report abusing precription medication say they get it from the home of a family member or friend. You can drop off your unused or expired medications safely at the Palmetto Police Department 1115 10th St W. Palmetto, FL. Also, you can contact us to learn how you can get Deterra  drug disposal bags. 

KNOW THE LAW

 

Know the Law is a program that is delivered to 6th and 9th graders in Manatee County public middle and high schools. It is based on the premise that when kids know better, they do better. The presentation is given to the students by their SRO and they get a booklet to take home so they can discuss what they learned with their caregivers. If your student comes home with one, please take the time to go through it with them. Who knows, you might learn something new, too!

PREVENTION PRESENTATIONS

If your group or organization would like to learn more about specific substances and their effects, local conditions regarding substance abuse/ mental health, or what you can do to help North River Prevention Partners in their work, please give us a call. We will be happy to come to you and present to your group at no cost to you!

COALITION MEETINGS

 

 

​We are excited to start having community coalition meetings soon! Be on the lookout for updates regarding dates, times, locations, etc.  We want to know what YOU want to know, so we will be publishing a survey soon, so follow us on Facebook!
