Youth Marijuana Prevention Program
The King County Youth Marijuana Prevention and Education Program is a regional effort led by Public Health - Seattle & King County, the King County Behavioral Health and Recovery Division (BHRD) and Seattle Children's Hospital, with funding support from the Washington State Department of Health.
This co-leadership structure was formed to provide a wide array of expertise as it relates to youth marijuana and vaping prevention. We look forward to working with community partners on this initiative to reduce underage marijuana and vaping initiation and use in King County.
Resources from the King County Youth Marijuana Prevention and Education Network:
Youth motivational speaker Scott Backovich lead a fun, action-packed, skill-building training to teach adults how to engage, captivate, and inspire youth into taking positive action in their own lives and in their local communities.
Participants learned the basics of community-level youth substance abuse prevention and can now apply skills to develop grant applications or new projects and initiatives. Audience: Anyone who hasn't been to the Washington Substance Abuse Prevention Systems Training (WA SAPST) or are newer to community-based substance abuse prevention work.
