Prevention Services

Youth prevention resources focused on school-age youth throughout Aroostook and Hancock counties.

Aroostook Teen Leadership Camp (ATLC)
ATLC develops teen drug prevention leaders who gain the necessary knowledge, skills, training, and support to effectively work with other teens through a five-day residential summer camp. The camp is designed for grades 5 – 9 and provides leadership skills, substance use awareness education, team building, and coping skills development. Along with the summer camp, ATLC works with teens throughout the school year to continue developing and strengthening the skills acquired at camp. For more information, please call 207-493-3361 ext. 157.

Maine Youth Action Network (MYAN)
Programming through MYAN helps support ATLC while including adult learning, equity in schools, youth voice, employment and internships, and consulting with community partners to ensure the progress and growth of youth. For more information, please call 207-493-3361 ext. 157.
