Current Youth Master Plan initiatives include:
Substance Abuse and Mental Health
The ATOD Prevention Action Team is working to build an alcohol, tobacco, and other drug-free (ATOD-free) community. As part of this work, Lake County Build a Generation has partnered with Lake County School District to form the Lake County Youth Council, in which youth are focused on creating dialogue and encouraging healthy choices around substance use, mental health and active living. These youth are prepared and ready to partner with Lake County Build a Generation when opportunities arise for youth engagement. To get involved, contact John Nelson, Youth Master Plan Manager, at 719-486-4114 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Food Access Coalition is working to build a community in which healthy food is affordable, available, and in demand by consumers. They are particularly focused on addressing the needs of residents at or below 200% of poverty. To get involved, contact John Nelson, Youth Master Plan Manager, at 719-486-4114 or email@example.com.
