Is your child interested in additional leadership opportunities? Is your child passionate about helping others? Our iLEAD Youth Coalition Club sounds like a great fit for them! The iLEAD Youth Coalition is an interactive club focused on shaping youth into future leaders through character building, substance prevention education, access to positive mentors, and more. In 2019, the Firth Youth Center was appointed as the fiscal agent for LEAD Phillipsburg: Learn, Educate, Advocate, Develop Drug Free Communities Coalition. This is a competitive grant under the direction of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. LEAD Phillipsburg currently serves the Town of Phillipsburg and surrounding communities. The coalition consists of sector representatives and staff that work together to strengthen community collaboration in support of local efforts to reduce youth substance use. LEAD Phillipsburg focuses on integrating prevention and environmental strategies to decrease underage drinking, tobacco, and marijuana use among youth.
The second meeting of the year will be held on Monday, November 14th from 3:30-4:30pm at the Firth Youth Center for Grades 5th-8th. Meetings consist of character building lessons, educational games, prevention activities, and more!
