Description

Through a broad coalition of community, faith and school leaders as well as public officials, Futuro- Latino works to reduce and prevent alcohol and substance use among Latino youth throughout Harrisonburg and Rockingham County. The coalition evaluates local data to identify when and where potential underage drinking and drug use may occur and pursues a variety of environmental strategies to reduce availability and accessibility. The program supports development of youth leaders through national conferences as well as local leadership opportunities.
