Northland Coalition Programs

Northland Youth Leadership Summit

A full-day conference for high school students from 15 school districts developed to give student leaders the opportunity to further enhance their leadership skills through workshops and group learning.  Speakers and workshops are broken into tracks, including prevention and leadership. The goal is to increase impact in their individual schools and organizations.

Northland “Know It 2 Win It” – 7th Grade Program

Students in the 7th grade learn how and where to find accurate information on alcohol, tobacco and other drugs on the Internet and discover the harmful effects of substance abuse through an online assignment. Representatives from each school participate in the local and regional “game show” to win money by knowing answers to questions about alcohol, tobacco or other drug concerns. Parents are encouraged to assist their child with the homework assignment, hopefully facilitating conversations about alcohol and other drugs.

½ Day Prevention Conference and Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast

The conference begins with a breakfast that serves to honor and recognize volunteers and major program contributors.  After the breakfast, a keynote presentation is given and a series of workshops are offered. These workshops target specific segments of the community and featured prevention strategies specific to those segments.   

Parent Up Social Marketing Campaign

Parent Up is a targeted social marketing campaign geared at reducing underage drinking. The goal/purpose of Parent Up is to encourage parents to increase communication with their child concerning alcohol and establish “no use” policies. The campaign stresses that it is neither too early, nor too late, to talk to youth about alcohol. Throughout the campaign, the community is saturated with messages reminding parents to talk to their child because their words do matter. This campaign targets adults parenting youth aged 5-18.

Safe Prom / Graduation Partnership

Safe Prom is focused on proms and graduations in the Northland area.  To keep these events safe, the Northland Coalition works with alcohol retailers, high schools, florists, formal wear merchants, hotel and motel managers, law enforcement, owners/operators of limousine services, and prosecuting attorneys to educate and help prevent underage drinking and illegal activities at parties involving minors.

Girl Power – Middle School Program

Girl Power! addresses the important issues in girls’ lives today, with an overall goal of increasing self-esteem and positive life choices by instilling self-confidence and resilience in young women. At the end of the two-day retreat, participants create a strategic plan and are encouraged to implement a prevention program in their individual middle school, with technical assistance provided by Tri-County Mental Health staff.

Our Vision

The Northland Communities will be healthy and safe environments in which to raise children. 

Our Mission

Through community involvement, leadership, and the sharing of resources, the Northland Coalition promotes and encourages the positive, healthy, and safe lifestyle decisions of our youth.
