PACT Prevention


What is PACT?
PACT Prevention Coalition is a non-profit organization impacting critical lifestyle choices of our local youth. Our mission is to make St. Johns County a healthy, substance-free community. We work collaboratively with all major sectors of the community, from the school district to law enforcement, to help prevent (and reduce) use and abuse of alcohol and drugs by our teens and pre-teens. 

What is a Coalition?
A coalition is a collection of sectors, or groups of people from diverse disciplines in the community, who come together to address an issue. Our sectors include: youth, parents, education, business, government, faith-based, media, law enforcement, substance abuse/mental health providers, youth serving agencies, healthcare, civic/volunteer groups, and any community resident who is interested in making St. Johns County a better place to live.
