This program is not just about saying "no" to drugs; it is about fostering a sense of community, support, and understanding among youth. By coming together, they can learn from one another, engage in meaningful discussions, and make informed choices that will shape their lives positively.


By enrolling students, in The Youth Connection as soon as possible, the program can provide them with invaluable life skills that will serve them well throughout their lives. The program instills a sense of responsibility, resilience, and self-confidence, empowering the children to navigate the challenges they may encounter with strength and wisdom.


The early years of adolescence are critical for shaping attitudes and behaviors, and The Youth Connection offers a safe and nurturing space for students to grow and flourish.


Moreover, young adults from the community are warmly welcomed to join as volunteers, serving as both mentors and valuable resources for young members. This intergenerational exchange of knowledge and support creates a strong bond within the Trojan Family and strengthens a sense of community.


In conclusion, The Youth Connection is for children's well-being and the future of Hamblen County. Together, The Youth Connection can create a supportive and drug-free environment where students can thrive and fulfill their potential.


If one is interested in enrolling children or would like more information about the program, please contact the Hamblen County Substance Abuse Program or visit their website.
