Working Towards a Better Tomorrow
HOW IT ALL BEGAN...
In 2012, a Lower Township resident approached the Mayor at a local Little League game and voiced her concerns about the rising substance misuse, and the safety of the youth in Lower Township. A task force was formed, and this small group evolved into The Lower Township Healthy Youth Coalition that is now more than 125 members strong.
HOW THE COALITION WORKS...
The Lower Township Healthy Youth Coalition brings together community members from all walks of life to create and promote an alcohol, tobacco, and drug-free environment for the youth of Lower Township. The members include educators, law enforcement, parents, youth faith leaders, and businesses. The coalition's mission is to plan and implement strategies to prevent and reduce youth substance misuse and its associated consequences that focus specifically in the Lower Township community.
