Rainbow over It`s All in the Barn EventYouth who start drinking before the age of 15 are 6 times more likely to develop alcohol dependence later in life than those who begin to drink at age 21.

We exist because we want to reduce youth risks, enhance protective factors, and provide evidenced based prevention programming. Using  our Alger County youth survey results, AC3’s action target specific needs of our youth related to:

  • substance abuse
  • delinquency
  • teen pregnancy
  • school drop out
  • violence
  • depression/anxiety/suicide
