Youth/Young Adults plan for a Drug Free community!
Newton County Drug Free Coalition is actively seeking high school youth and college young adults to participate in the community-wide planning group for drug/alcohol abuse prevention.
The Coalition meets monthly to discuss how we can help our community raise awareness about the effects and impacts of substance misuse by youth and adults. The Coalition is made up of agencies and organizations who have a vested interest in the mental health and well being of the people they serve and citizens interested in seeing a reduction in drug/alcohol use and the accompanying high-risk behaviors that damage our community.
The Coalition meets first Wednesday of the month from noon to 1:30 pm. If you can't make the current meeting schedule but would like to be involved in helping to prevent substance misuse, there are opportunities to be involved in campaigns throughout the year. Contact Mollie Melvin at Newton County Family Connection, 770.330.7405 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hands On Newton's Vision : Every Newton County citizen is able to participate in meaningful volunteer service according to each one’s talents and interests to build a better community. Hands On Newton's Mission : Hands On Newton engages and empowers people of all ages in volunteer service through partnerships with local organizations and visionaries.
Hands On Newton (HON) was established in 2007 as a program of the Newton County Community Partnership-A Family Connection Collaborative (NCCP) to foster volunteer service and civic engagement that address issues resulting from Newton County’s sudden and rapid population growth. Our choice to use the Hands On model ensures effective volunteer management.
HON has diversified and expanded Newton County’s volunteer workforce through one-time and ongoing service projects and service to other nonprofits. Volunteers participate individually, with their families, or with a group; HON actively collaborates with other community organizations and for-profits to create large-scale or long-term projects such as community gardens.
We'll work with your schedule.
