The Butte Youth Now Coalition is a gathering of community leaders, stakeholders, and youth who convene to strategize solutions and make commitments to support prevention efforts aimed at reducing alcohol, tobacco, drugs, and violence in all communities and cultures throughout Butte County. Butte Youth Now Coalition focuses on policies, ordinances, and codes which support enforcement efforts and provide additional funding and resources. Since being officially recognized as a Drug Free Community Coalition in 2006 Butte Youth Now has become a leader in Butte County in implementing environmental strategies that have been proven effective in reducing youth access to alcohol and underage and high risk drinking.
The Butte Youth Now Coalition Meetings are held the second Thursday of every month from 3pm-5pm at Enloe Conference Center in Chico. For any information or questions, please contact Amelia Storm at firstname.lastname@example.org
