Get Involved

Volunteering with us provides a unique opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of young individuals and contribute to building a healthier and safer community.  Work closely with the Council for Drug-Free Youth to identify areas where your skills and expertise can be utilized. They may have ongoing projects, campaigns, or initiatives that require volunteers. By collaborating with the organization, you can actively contribute to their efforts in motivating, educating, and collaborating among youth.  As a volunteer, you’ll have the opportunity to directly engage with youth and make a difference in their lives. This can involve conducting workshops, mentoring, organizing events, participating in awareness campaigns, or facilitating discussions on drug prevention. By connecting with young individuals, you can help inspire them to choose a drug-free lifestyle.

Let’s Volunteer!

Your involvement is what makes our programs possible! Whether you serve on a committee or just volunteer a few times a year, the coalition would not be possible without you!

We currently serve 19,000 public and private school students in over 7 counties, but with your help, we can expand our services to reach over 35,000 students in Mid-Missouri! Feel free to contact us if you’d like to be involved.
