The Governor’s Prevention Partnership is committed to guiding a generation of young people toward success so they are ready to take their place in our future workforce. Whether it is lending your voice with a testimonial that helps others feel stronger, giving your time as a mentor, joining a life-changing youth group, sponsoring a Partnership event, or participating in one of our trainings, your support is greatly needed and appreciated. We count on our dedicated partners who are just as committed as we are to helping Connecticut’s youth have the best future possible. Corporate Partnerships - Partner with us to help Connecticut kids stay safe, successful and drug free. For 30 years, we have been the go-to resource for information and training about issues that seriously threaten our children. Timely and well-researched youth prevention programs can be tailored to your company, community, or individual needs, along with substantial benefits packages to raise awareness of your support. Some 50 companies throughout the state have become a Partner In Prevention, leading the way for you and others to get involved.
