The Communities That Care (CTC) program promotes sound development of children and youth in Prescott-Russell.
CTC is a prevention system for communities. It is a group of people in your community who work to promote healthy development in children and youth in Prescott-Russell. CTC aims to prevent and reduce delinquency, school drop-out, substance abuse, teen pregnancy and violence among youth.
The CTC program favours the community approach to achieving positive change. Community prevention committees have been set up in the Embrun, Clarence-Rockland and Hawkesbury areas. Those committees consist of parents, volunteers, youth and representatives of local agencies, all working together on behalf of Prescott-Russell youth.
We work in partnership with the community to create a safe environment for youth in Prescott-Russell.
