Empower Youth. Engage Parents.
Eliminate Substance Misuse & Abuse.
Be the Change 406 Coalition was formed in 2015 to meet the needs of prevention efforts as part of a federal grant. The coalition is a collaborative effort of adult and youth activists targeting underage drinking and drug misuse among youth 12-21 in Beaverhead County.
The goal of the coalition is to create a culture of health for youth and families that supports a lifestyle free of substance use and misuse. Our diverse membership includes representatives from every aspect of the community, including a youth coalition, composed of middle and high school students.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.Benjamin Franklin
