Supporting Youth and Building Leadership in Prevention 

Utilizing the National Institute of Drug Abuse's (NIDA) risk and protective factor key principles, we will explore how to build and support a prevention system by partnering with youth. Preventing substance misuse cannot be accomplished by one group, government, or sector. The most effective prevention happens in local communities with local community members. When it is done well, all people in the community have equitable access to the decision-making process.
