Individuals: How Can You Help?

There are as many ways you can help as there are kids. You can work one-on-one. Or with a group. Or with people of any age. You can work to gain the support of community leaders. Or behind the scenes. You can even help start a coalition yourself. The list is endless.

You can work with youth by:
  • Coaching
  • Chaperoning
  • Reading to children
  • Driving or transporting
  • Camping counseling
  • Teaching (e.g., dance or art)
  • Mentoring
  • Assisting students with homework
  • Assisting with school-based activities
  • Assisting at special events
You can assist a local drug prevention organization by:
  • Fundraising
  • Doing strategic planning
  • Planning events
  • Writing grants
  • Assisting with monthly newsletters
  • Assisting with community advocacy
  • Mobilizing your community to sponsor a drug prevention project
How Much of Your Time?

Just a little of your time can make a lifetime of difference. How much time you invest is entirely up to you. It can be a short-term or long-term involvement. Just an hour a week or a few hours a week or month—whatever you can spare—can have a significant impact on your community.
