Event Description

The Youth Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Project (YADAPP) is a peer-led program for high school students to address underage substance use at the high school level. YADAPP kicks off with an annual youth-led summer conference empowering teens to keep their schools and communities alcohol and drug-free. This unique experience is team-based, formed through high schools and community organizations. Teams work together to brainstorm problems in their schools and communities, identify goals and create STAN (Strategies to Act Now) Plans to tackle those problems. Youth Participants and Adult Sponsors will participate in a wide variety of informative breakout and general sessions that will aide in the completion of their STAN Plans.

Team- One team consists of up to four Youth Participants and one Adult Sponsor. A team must be comprised of high school aged student leaders representing a high school or community organization.
Adult Sponsor- The main role of an Adult Sponsor is to provide encouragement and guidance to their team while actively participating in the Adult Sponsor track and the implementation of a substance abuse STAN Plan for their school or community.
Participants- Rising ninth through rising twelfth grade student leaders within a high school or community organization.
Youth Participants should be selected for their commitment to leading drug-free lives and their peer leadership potential.
