Happy New Year from the Roy Communities that Care Coalition.
We want to say thank you to the Roy community for the tremendous support we have received this past year. Despite the many challenges we all have faced, we could still accomplish effective and important goals from our Roy CTC 2020-21 Implementation Plan.
Recently, The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy awarded the Roy CTC a Drug-Free Community Grant for $125,000.00 per year for five years. Next, we received an E-cigarette, Marijuana, & Other Drug Prevention Grant from the Weber-Morgan Health Department. These grant funds will enable us to implement new programs and bolster current programs, helping reduce substance misuse and strengthen the youth in our community.
One of the new programs we are looking forward to is our “Youth Based Service Projects.”
The Roy CTC will give financial support to school clubs, teams, and organizations (Roy Jr. High, Sand Ridge Jr. High, and Roy High School) to do community service projects. Clubs, teams, and organizations that apply and are approved will receive $150.00 to support their organization. How they use it is to their discretion. They may opt to purchase club shirts, have a pizza party, buy needed equipment, etc. This opportunity ends on June 30, 2021. The coalition has thirty stipends available; it will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
The purpose of this project is to implement a prevention factor to aid against “Low Neighborhood Connection” and a protective factor for an opportunity for “Pro-social Involvement” for the youth in our Roy community.
Engaging the youth in service is twofold; serving helps them become more engaged in the community and help those who are served.
Communities That Care (CTC) is a prevention system grounded in science that gives communities the tools to address their adolescent health and behavior problems by focusing on empirically identified risk and protective factors.
CTC helps our community increase high-quality implementation of tested, effective preventive interventions that address elevated widespread risk factors for adolescent problem behaviors.
