    “To create a positive culture and to inspire a generation of powerful teens

    to strive for a life of positive influences.”

    Who we are

    We are... a Teen Advisory Board to the Valley Coalition To Promote Drug Free Youth.

    We are... an energetic high school club that is working together to improve and enrich the lives of our peers.

    We are... a voice to represent the teens in the SYV to help create positive change.

    We are... friends that choose safe and exciting ways to have fun together.

    What we do

    We usually have meetings once a week on Thursdays during lunch in P17; and sometimes we meet at Chomp or at another location.

    We promote drug free campaigns.

    We have two drug and alcohol awareness campaigns per year.

    We sponsor youth forums.

    Members participate in City Government.

    We create positive change.

    We help educate youth and adults about harmful decisions and harmful situations. 

    Why we do it

    We don’t want to lose anymore friends to alcohol,  drugs, violence, or abusive situations.
    because we believe every teen deserves a healthy life and a bright future. 

    Most teens don't use alcohol & drugs.

    Together let’s break the cycle!
    Be a Pirate.  Lose the rum!
    Be a part of the change!
    Dream Big!

    2012/2013 Publicity

    Three YAC members and three students from Ms. Lee's Film Appreciation class attended the "It Starts With Me" conference at Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo on February 1, 2013. The conference was on recognizing, preventing, and dealing with bullying. Four authors and representatives from Asset Development Network and other organizations provided valuable information for children, teens, and adults.
