Introduction to our Initiatives
21 or Too Young
21 Or Too Young is the promise that you can achieve your wildest dreams without the crutch of alcohol before the legal age limit. It is the pledge to yourself that you are above binge drinking and potential alcoholism.
Support Your Kids' Interests
Support Your Kids’ Interests is a community-based campaign that target marijuana use among youth ages 11 to 15. The initiative asks that children and adults pledge to help prevent marijuana use among the youth.
Social Host Ordinace
Tempe is the first city in the East Valley to pass the Social Host Ordinance. Under the ordinance, anyone providing alcohol to a person younger than 21 can be held responsible.
Thanks to funding from the Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family, the Coalition is able to provide resources, awareness and education on prescription drug misuse.
