Advocacy and Partnerships

At The Governor’s Prevention Partnership, we are dedicated to raising awareness about the crucial need for youth prevention in Connecticut. Our commitment to our state’s young people goes beyond our programs and events; we are tireless advocates for their wellbeing, safety, and future.

Advocacy For Youth

We remain steadfast advocates for the youth of Connecticut. As laws and policies evolve, we ensure that the voices and needs of our young people are heard and addressed. A recent example of this is our active involvement in the discussions surrounding Connecticut’s legalization of adult use cannabis. Our goal is to ensure that such legislative changes take into account the potential impact on our youth, and that adequate safeguards are put in place to protect them. We are dedicated to fostering an environment where our youth can thrive, free from the risks of substance use.

Partnering for Prevention

We believe that the best solutions are achieved through collaboration, which is why we place a strong emphasis on partnerships. Our public-private partnership model enables us to work closely with businesses, community organizations, educators, and families, harnessing the collective strength of diverse stakeholders to create a comprehensive approach to prevention.

Our partnerships with businesses are particularly vital. These collaborations not only provide resources and support for our prevention efforts, but they also create opportunities for businesses to demonstrate their commitment to the welfare of their communities and the future workforce. Together, we can create safer, healthier environments for our young people to grow and succeed.

Our approach underscores the importance of unity in our mission to equip young people with the tools to make safe, healthy choices. Through advocacy and partnerships, we can make a significant impact in the lives of Connecticut’s youth. Join us in our mission to create a brighter future for the next generation.

The Governor’s Prevention Partnership builds statewide capacity to prevent underage drinking and substance use and builds strategic alliances to promote the overall well-being of Connecticut’s future workforce.
