What Is Communities That Care?
Communities That Care (CTC) is a risk-focused approach to reducing adolescent drug use and violence through community mobilization and planning. Local citizens and community leaders work together as the CTC for Youth Board to identify the risk factors that increase the likelihood of problem behaviors developing, and enhance the protective factors that can shield youngsters from problems. The risk and protective factors are used to implement a comprehensive plan to step ahead of problems with far-reaching and long-lasting solutions.
|The Youth Subcommittee of Norristown Area CTC For Youth, in partnership with Norristown Area Fight Against Drugs at Norristown Area High School, replicated the national anti-drug media campaign highlighting local youth leaders at community locations with personalized messages. A variety of substance abuse prevention posters focusing on youth and parents are available in English and Spanish. To request a poster to be displayed at your community or business location in the Norristown Area, please contact Angela Bell at 610-630-2111 ext. 236 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
