This Year's Project: Youth Leaders Initiative


About Our Organization

Siouxland CARES is a community coalition whose mission is to improve the quality of life in Siouxland by eliminating the abuse of alcohol and other drugs and related violence. The organization takes an active role in addressing the problem of underage drinking and other drug abuse by implementing prevention strategies that target youth, young adults, parents, community agencies, businesses and policies.



Current Project: Youth Leaders Initiative




Each year, Siouxland CARES raises funds to support the Youth Leaders Initiative. The initiative works directly with middle school and high school youth to help build their confidence so that they may make positive choices and positively impact our community.

 

The initiative increases the capacity for youth to make, and influence others to make, healthy, drug-free choices by intervening in situations where healthy choices are not being made, therefore reducing the number of youth using alcohol and other drugs or bullying others. The Youth Leaders Initiative provides educational opportunities to help build citizenship in youth leaders. Students learn a variety of skills through the programs, including Drug Refusal Skills, Public Speaking, Fundraising, Volunteerism, Leadership, Advocacy and Personal Development Skills.
