Join a Sub-Committee

The Coalition has smaller committees to work on specific aspects of the Coalition work. Work with your community on a specific project.


What does a CCFW meeting look like?

Various agencies and community members get together. We brainstorm ideas on how we can positively effect our community. We need input from the people who live and work here on what initiatives, activities, and trainings we can bring to the community. Come to a meeting to share your ideas, help discuss other's ideas, and meet other like-minded people. ​Can't wait to meet you!

Who is invited to CCFW meetings?

Everyone who wants to make positive change in the South Glens Falls community is welcome to join in the meetings. As a coalition, our focus is reducing youth substance use and risky behavior. We focus on alcohol, tobacco, opioids, and marijuana. Of course, enabling our youth to make healthy choices encompasses more than just prevention. We work hard to create activities and initiatives to give youth things to chose other than substances.

Do I have to let someone know I'm coming to a meeting?

Not at all! The meetings are regularly held on the first Wednesday of the month, at 3:00 - 4:00 pm. If you are available to join us, just come on in! If you need information, directions or someone to help you find where the meetings are located, contact us and we'll help any way we can! Email ccfw-coordinator@preventioncouncil.org or call 518-581-1230 x3618.

What if I can't come to a meeting but I still want to be involved?

We are so glad you want to be involved!  There are many ways to be involved. Opportunities include volunteering at events, working with youth in schools, sharing ideas, involving your special interests and talents, helping to get the word out about who we are. We have sub-committees that meet at different times, so they may fit into your schedule. We send out regular email blasts with updates, activities, events, information, and more! Be sure to get on the email list!
