DAYTON, OH – The Montgomery County Prevention Coalition (MCPC) is accepting applications for funding for the Youth Leadership in Prevention (YLP) program in middle and high schools. The YLP program offers stipends of up to $10,000 for schools that offer youth-led, peer-to-peer prevention programming.    

Youth Leadership in Prevention programs in schools empower students (grades 6-12) to create peer-to-peer supports, prevention messaging, and programming that decreases drug and alcohol use while promoting mental wellness. This program will be student-led but adult-supported.

Eligible organizations for funding include public, charter, and parochial middle and high schools located within Montgomery County, Ohio. Applicants must agree to collect program outcomes throughout the funding cycle and return that information to the Montgomery County Prevention Coalition. Applicants are required to submit an application by Wednesday, June 1st, 2022 at 11:59 PM. If you would like to learn more about the program and applicable funding, please attend our informational session via zoom on Thursday, May 12th, 2022 from 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM.
