Proceeds from Reeling for Recovery will help continue Prevention Services at Champlain Valley Family Center work with schools, youth, families and the community to provide education, support, and counseling around substance use prevention. Through our evidence based curricula we teach and support skill building in the areas of healthy choices, managing emotions, resistance skills, communication skills and resolving conflicts. We provide direct services to at-risk youth in both student assistance counseling and during our summer program, both of which support our youth in making good decisions, reaching goals and reinforcing academic success. Prevention services are key to building protective factors in youth to prevent substance use.
