The Working Together Coalition recently received the Shutting off the Tap to Teens - Coalition of the year award from the Minnesota Prevention Resource Center. The award was received for the Coalition accomplishment over the past year. Highlights of those accomplishments include:
- Expanding the Coalition into WHA school district and Northland Community school districts.
- Working with Cass County and the City of Pine River to establish Social Host Policy.
- Collaboration with local school districts.
- Establishing youth leadership teams (Teens Leading the Way) in each school district.
- Reaching out to parents.
The goal of the Working Together Coalition is to provide the school districts of Northland Community, Pine River-Backus and Walker-Hackensack-Akeley information on how to prevent the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs among our youth. We will do this by providing you information about what our Coalition is doing locally and also direct you to existing online resources that will provide information to see more, please visit our website at www.workingtogethercoalition.org
