Youth Engagement & Leadership
The children really are our future! Since our inception, BPHC has made a commitment to empowering local youth to be leaders in prevention activities in our community.
Are you 18 and under, living in Burlington, and want to get more involved with prevention activities? We collaborate with these school based groups:
Teens participating in the Burlington High School START Group have been teaming up to support their peers to live life at it’s best, substance free. If you are a Burlington High School student and you want to get involved, contact Melissa Cleary at (802)864-2148 or connect with START on Facebook. If you must dream of the world you want to live in, START dreaming out loud!
Middle Schoolers can join up with the Edmunds and Hunt Middle schools Vermont Kids Against Tobacco (VKAT) and STOP Groups. Check with your school’s guidance department to get involved.
If you live in Burlington, but do not attend any of these schools, don’t worry! There is still a place for you. Contact us directly and we’ll get you involved!
