Youth-Led Prevention (It Stops With Students/Students Leading Students/Students Taking a New Direction)
It Stops With Students/Students Leading Students/Students Taking a New Direction is a Youth-Led Prevention initiative that provides students from Navigator Upper Elementary School, Pathfinder School, and Pinckney Community High School the opportunity to connect with peers to promote healthy choices and non-using norms. ISWS/SLS/STAND works closely with the Livingston County Community Alliance (LCCA) and community partners to implement several prevention programs that have been proven to impact substance use and related problems, including Project Sticker Shock, Youth PhotoVoice, and the MOST Teens Don’t Use campaign. ISWS/SLS/STAND allows youth to work side-by-side with adults to have input in the planning and decision making of prevention activities. Using their strengths, youth are able to take ownership for their community while increasing protective factors and promoting overall health and wellness.
