Youth Stand Up Leadership Team
The STAND UP Leadership Team is a group of high school teens that support and encourage their peers to abstain from alcohol, tobacco and other drugs (ATOD), and promote positive mental health and healthy relationships. In addition to being resources, mentors and positive role models, these leaders focus on teen issues and identify community needs that drive youth programming in the county.
STAND UP is unique by allowing ALL teens leadership opportunities that motivate their peers to make positive changes. The heart of STAND UP is the teens. Every teen is invited to become a part of STAND UP no matter his or her decisions in the past. It is about making positive, healthy choices now and giving teens the tools and resources to sustain those choices into adulthood.
