About HEY! Community Coalition
HEY! Community Coalition is a local working group of parents and citizens, prevention specialist, businesses, educators, faith based and civic groups, media, youth, healthcare, government officials and organizations, treatment professionals and substance abuse counselors, volunteer and youth serving agencies.
HEY! (Helping Empower Youth) Taskforce was founded in 2002 under the Communities Mobilizing for a Change on Alcohol. Our primary purpose was to support the CHILL Youth Task Force. We have grown since that time to become a strong, diverse partnership of over 40 members engaging youth and the community in promoting positive choices for youth. As a result of that growth, in 2011 we reorganized and adopted a new name, becoming the HEY! (Helping ENGAGE Youth) Community Coalition along with a new mission statement and vision. The coalition has a constitution and by-laws which govern its work and meetings.
Our action areas include:
- Training, Recruitment, and Coalition Development
- Education, Awareness and ATOD (Alcohol Tobacco and Other Drugs) Prevention Activities
- Policy and Environmental Change
- Sustainablity and Fundraising
- Drug Free MHC
- CHILL (Communities Helping Improve Local Lives) Youth Task Force
Our monthly meetings typically fall on the third Wednesday of each month at 12:30pm at the New College Institute.
