The Twin Cities Coalition for Healthy Youth was created to change community norms with respect to underage use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Our mission is to mobilize across all sectors of the community and work collaboratively to significantly reduce the incidence of underage use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.
Our members represent twelve sectors within the communities of Corte Madera and Larkspur (including the incorporated part of Greenbrae): Youth; Parent; Business; Media; School; Youth Serving Organization; Law Enforcement; Religious/Fraternal; Civic/Volunteer Groups; Healthcare Professional; Local Government Agency; Other Organizations Involved in Reduction of Substance Abuse.
Grant funding is provided by the Division of Alcohol, Drug, and Tobacco Program within the Department of Health and Human Services for the County of Marin. The Twin Cities Police Authority (as the grant recipient) is the lead agency and the program coordinator.
Any qualified individual can apply to be a member. Applicants shall be elected at a regular meeting of the Coalition by the active members then in office. June 30th is the end of the term and all members are eligible for re-election.
We meet bi-monthly in the community room of the Central Marin Police station (250 Doherty Drive) on the third Thursday of the month at 3:45 PM.
