The Youth Rally highlighted seven outstanding innovative youth programs from across PA. They participated in trainings at the conference that gave them the opportunity to learn about the work of coalitions and community prevention providers, to develop positive messaging, and to discover the value of the Lead and Seed curriculum and take a skills challenge.  These Youth Groups shared the unique ways that their team is working to influence their friends, families and communities to make healthy life choices about drugs and other high risk behaviors.
