Prevention Starts with YOU!

Connecticut’s future lies in the hands of our youth. From elementary school students to emerging professionals, young people hold the key to our state’s potential. As times change, our unwavering mission remains: ensuring our young people have a safe, drug-free environment in which to thrive.

We’re committed to tackling underage drinking, substance use, and other challenges our youth face. But we can’t do it alone. That’s why this year, the theme of our event is “Prevention Starts With YOU!”

Whether you’re a parent, an educator, a mentor, a member of the business community, a legislator, or simply a caring adult your role is crucial. Your influence, guidance, and support can make a world of difference in the lives of our young people. By working together, we can shape prevention strategies that resonate, create mentoring opportunities that inspire, and nurture an environment where our youth can focus on their dreams and aspirations free from the specter of drugs and alcohol.

Join us at our 2023 Governor’s Celebration. Let’s stand united in our commitment to the well-being of Connecticut’s youth and work hand in hand to ensure they have every opportunity to succeed. Your involvement today will help pave a brighter tomorrow.
