Here are some local resources that COA has partnered with to help youth and young adults to choose to live a healthy lifestyle.

The AIM High (previously known as Thrive Alive) series began March 30th for teens (13-17 yrs). It is a great way to armor them up against the many dangers and obstacles they are faced with in today’s world. From Trending Drug Cultures, Social Media and Self-Esteem, to Nutrition and Eating for a Sustainable World. AIM High offers a 7-week program of educational workshops, mixed with fun social activities and creative art projects!
