The Communities That Cares system provides strategic consultation, training and research-based tools to help communities work together to promote the positive development of children and youth and prevent adolescent problem behaviors – including alcohol and other drug use, delinquency, teen pregnancy, dropping out of school and violence.
The Communities That Care system has been designed to guide communities through the five most critical and challenging steps in this process, from community mobilization through outcomes evaluation. It involves all parts of the community in promoting healthy development before young people become involved in problem behaviors.
The CTC system helps communities:
Youth First is coordinating the Communities That Care process in Gibson, Posey and Warrick Counties.
