Our Work

TEAM provides prevention education to middle and high school students, makes presentations for parents on topics related to youth substance use, convenes community groups, provides opportunities for youth activities in safe, substance-free environments, and is available as a community partner.

We favor a developmental approach to addressing youth substance use. In doing so, we recognize the importance of adolescents’ inclination toward taking risks, and we promote a formula for prevention that provides opportunities for youth to satisfy needs without compromising their future.

 
 

Our Programs

We serve youth and families throughout Larimer County through a number of evidence-based and evidence-informed programs.

 

Youth programs

Using the evidence-informed curriculum BrainWise we partner with schools, community centers, and the criminal justice system to deliver our two youth programs: Define Youth and Youth Empowered Yoga.
 

Responsible Association of retailers

RAR, the Responsible Association of Retailers works with restaurants, liquore stores, and cannabis dispensaries to train employees on the safe, legal sales of alcohol & cannabis.

Parent programs

Preventing youth substance use takes a village. That’s why we believe that it’s important to provide support to the people who care about them most, their parents.

Coalition work

We work with partners, professionals, and community members on a number of initiatives aimed at promoting healthy youth development and safe communities.
