What We Do
The Governor’s Prevention Partnership builds and offers youth prevention programs that are based on state-of-the-art research and training that is reality-based and relevant to our young peoples’ needs and environment to prevent substance misuse and bullying.
We do this with an eye toward the future, one filled with the promise of successful young people ready and excited to take their place in tomorrow’s workforce.
We seek to build awareness, alliances, knowledge, and capacity—all to support the objective to mitigate risks for young people in Connecticut and promote their well-being.
We fulfill our mission by serving as a public policy advocate and by identifying, demonstrating, and promoting effective prevention and intervention practices. We serve as a source of funding, training, data, and best practices for direct service providers seeking to offer programs that will have a measurable, positive impact on youth.
Because meeting the challenge cannot be met by any person or organization working alone, The Partnership considers its most critical and unique leadership role to be as a collaborator, connector, and convener on a statewide basis. In particular, we foster a vibrant public-private partnership that engages businesses, state government, and communities. Get involved.
