Youth substance misuse is an ongoing issue in Questa and the surrounding communities. According to recent surveys 59% of high school students report drinking alcohol and 68.1% of high school students report using some form of tobacco product. The human brain continues to develop until the age of 25 and substance misuse can impair brain development. Here are some ways to get involved with Vida Del Norte and the effort to prevent youth substance misuse in our community.
Join as a Member, a Volunteer, a Community Partner or a participant in the Active8 Youth Coalition!
Anyone of any age can become involved with the Vida Del Norte Coalition. The coalition represents the sectors which make up the community of Questa and the surrounding areas. Every member of this community has unique skill sets and together we can combine these skills to help the youth in our communities. Involvement with Vida Del Norte can be as a member to attend coalition meetings and contribute to decision making, a volunteer to help out during events and activities, a community partner to show the support of your business or by joining the youth coalition.
