Mission Statement

The mission of the Healthy Youth Coalition of Marinette & Menominee Counties is a commitment to promote healthy lifestyles and choices throughout our communities to benefit our youth and their families.

We do this by increasing community awareness and knowledge of risk and protective factors, reducing youth and community risk factors and building protective factors which impact risky behaviors such as problem alcohol use, illicit drug use, and violence, promoting healthy youth activities, and by empowering our youth to identify and develop their own responses to barriers in our communities which impede the building of protective factors.
