Our Mission

To provide middle-school students with drug prevention programming and opportunities to learn new skills while making a positive impact in their communities.
This happens as student members learn about drug prevention while also building leadership and public speaking skills through weekly after-school programming.
While COVID-19 has had an impact on some of our school-based meetings (check the homepage for details on in-person meetings), our website offers a chance to keep YEP members engaged with games, weekly ZOOM-based meetings, and more. You can check the website for new content, typically posted most weekdays. Students from ALL Dunn County middle schools are welcome to participate with our online program.
