Dear Parents,

The Healthy Youth Coalition is excited about your child’s interest in the Coalition and the difference they will make promoting drug and alcohol prevention. HYC is a youth driven organization devoted to promoting healthy lifestyles among youth and their families throughout Marinette and Menominee Counties. We are actively involved in 11 different schools within the 2 counties. Our programs and activities give students the chance to make a differnce, help the community, and become a leader!

Our programs and activities include:

  • Monthly Meetings-Were we meet with our executive commities and discuss montly prevention ideas.
  • Awareness Day-An annual day long event geared toward teen leadership and drug and alcohol prevention offers educational breakout sessions that help empower youth. A motivational keynote speaker kicks off our day for students in 9th through 12th grade.
  • Media Campagin-Members will have the chance to write and record ads on issues they are facing along with designing billboards as well as filming awareness commercials for a chance to win a scholarship.
  • Every 15 Minutes- This two day drinking and driving program for students and their parents is an emotional expereince that realistically depicts the negative consequences of underage drinking and making irresponsible choice to drive.
  • Community Service Projects-Our HYC members are actively involved in our community helping out at numerous organization and agency events along with our own projects to help make a difference.
