About Our Work
Marin Healthy Youth Partnerships works to reduce underage substance use including tobacco, cannabis, alcohol and other drugs.
We use data, education and environmental strategies to help youth, parents and community members alter the perceptions that drive use.
What we do
We work collaboratively to reshape community norms to reduce youth substance use.
How we do it
We partner with young people, families, schools and other community organizations to promote a thriving environment.
Why we do it
The communities we serve in Marin County have significantly higher rates of underage alcohol, cannabis and other drug use when compared to the rest of California and across the country. We believe that can change – and that our young people deserve to grow up in an environment that reduces the risks and harms associated with underage substance use.
