West Chester Communities That Care (WCCTC) is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1999.
REDUCE SUBSTANCE ABUSE among youth,
PROMOTE POSITIVE CHOICES, and
STRENGTHEN FAMILIES through the collaborative efforts of our drug-free community coalition.
Using the proven CTC method, we work together with our community partners to seek out or develop programs to combat what we identify as the highest contributing factors towards SUBSTANCE ABUSE in our community.
IN CASE YOU MISSED THIS SPOTLIGHT EVENT:
Professionals from Main Line Health System had a conversation on how we, as a community, can help our youth cope with everyday stressors:
- School: grades, homework, balance with social/extra-curricular activities
- Self/Body Image: social and peer pressure to ‘belong’
- Relationships: friends, parents, siblings, and the increase of online sometimes anonymous ‘relationships’ through gaming, social media, etc.
You can still learn, share and be part of the solution to help our youth make healthy decisions and reduce alcohol and substance abuse in our community... check out these handouts from the event:
