With a focus on keeping Connecticut kids safe, successful and drug-free for a stronger workforce tomorrow, The Governor’s Prevention Partnership, started in 1989, is a public-private nonprofit dedicated to delivering prevention programs that address emerging and dangerous issues that affect youth.
Student surveys indicate that underage drinking has dropped 8.9 percent. For us, that's not good enough. And more than 50 percent of Connecticut's youth continue to deal with issues of drug use, family alcoholism, bullying and child abuse. It's time for a change.
Bullying is one of the most widespread and under reported problems within our schools and communities. We're working to fix that.
Is there a cost benefit to implementing an effective bullying prevention program at my school?
