Drug-Free Kids Campaign
While no community and few families escape the pain of drug abuse, it takes consistent and persistent action from family, community and business members to sustain healthy and safe environments for youth so they can be the leaders of today for tomorrow. The annual Drug-Free Kids Campaign raises funds for CADCA’s National Youth Leadership Initiative, scholarships and trainings which have proven to be effective with helping coalitions prevent substance abuse in their communities. Over 100 corporate, government and community leaders lend their support each year. The Campaign recognizes organizations and individuals who have contributed in a singularly outstanding manner to our cause of keeping America’s youth safe and drug-free. Be a part of the solution. Invest in the Drug-Free Kids Campaign.
