Springdale Together Coalition

The Springdale Together Coalition (STC) is a community-based volunteer prevention advocacy organization that brings together the people of Springdale to protect and promote the health, happiness and well-being of the youth in our community.

 

Since the coalition formed in 2013, it has provided ongoing resources and opportunities to support strategies designed to build capacity and produce sustainable outcomes. STC works in collaboration with the Mary Walker School District and the Educational Service District 101 to prevent youth substance use within the district.

 

Our Coalition is comprised of sector and stakeholder representatives, key leaders and partners, alongside vested community members. STC members and partners work together to assess, plan, implement and evaluate evidence-based, innovative and promising prevention strategies, as well as collaborate with local community and youth serving organizations. Our efforts result in a range of community and school based activities and increased public awareness and support relating to youth substance use, misuse and abuse issues in our community.

 

Risk factors we aspire to decrease include: community laws and norms favorable to youth substance use, social acceptance of youth substance use, early initiation of problem behavior by increasing perception of harm, decreasing disruptive behavior in the classroom, and decreasing youth intention to use alcohol, tobacco and other drugs (ATOD).
