During my time in Springfield, the Washington County Heartland Youth Coalition has stuck out to me as one of the most impactful organizations in the area.
It’s been a way for adults to reach teenagers about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse, while also allowing the teens to lead the charge themselves.
Plenty of other counties have programs such as D.A.R.E. and other anti-drug campaigns, but the hands-on approach that the youth coalition has taken with students is what sets it apart from other organizations.
