Summer imagesThank You to our wonderful Alliance Members & Volunteers – See you in September!

We had a successful year thanks to a terrific group of volunteers and professionals. Program evaluations indicate that  we made a difference in increasing the knowledge, attitudes and decision-making skills of students in the WW-P Regional School District.  Our programs reached all 2nd graders (Count on Me Kids), 5th graders (D.A.R.E.),  6-8th graders (8th Grade Connection), Post Prom (HS seniors), and residents of WW-P.
