2023 Governor’s Celebration

Thank You!

With more than 200 people in attendance, The Partnership’s 2023 Governor’s Celebration was a smashing success, and it couldn’t have happened without all of you. We extend our heartfelt thanks to our partners, speakers, and audience. This year’s theme was “Prevention Starts With YOU!” It’s a call to action for all of us to make prevention a daily part of our lives.  

For Connecticut’s youth to thrive, we must show up for them every single day. Substance misuse prevention is a marathon, not a sprint. The numbers don’t lie – young people with caring adults in their lives who talk to them about avoiding drugs and alcohol are 50% less likely to use.

Get Involved!

Here’s what you can do to make a difference in the life of a young person right now:
