Our Projects and Campaigns
The Coalition for Healthy Youth was founded to identify community needs and resources, promote greater collaboration and bring research-based prevention and intervention services to the youth in Lancaster County.
We provide comprehensive prevention efforts, including influencing policy and legislation, changing organizational practices, providing education, promoting community engagement and strengthening individual knowledge and skills.
Through our collaborative efforts, we secure funding to provide projects and programs to prevent substance misuse, teen pregnancy, delinquency, truancy and violence.
