Mission

To educate, equip, and empower community members to create a healthy and drug free future for children, youth and families.

The South Mountain W.O.R.K.S. Coalition’s targeted region is the South Mountain community in Phoenix, Arizona. Since its inception, the coalition has stayed focused on reducing the negative impact and consequences of youth substance use and underage drinking. We have done this through a myriad of strategies, including adult and youth prevention education and skill development; youth leadership and empowerment; effective community communication; and by building capacity through strong partnerships with local sectors and community leaders that have the highest capacity to invoke change. Additionally, the coalition works on traditional and social media campaigns to increase the perception of risk and reduce youth access, as well as environmental strategies including changing physical design to reduce youth access, policy change and advocacy efforts.
