The Commonwealth Prevention Alliance (CPA) is seeking individuals to form a Student Advisory Council consisting of students currently enrolled in a Pennsylvania college or university.
CPA's mission is to support drug and alcohol prevention professionals in eliminating substance abuse and risk related behaviors. For us to better serve professionals working in the field, we need the input and guidance from students who have an interest in improving the overall public and behavioral health of their campus and community.
CPA has been in existence for 40 years and is considered the premiere voice of prevention in PA. We have members from across the commonwealth working for Single County Authorities (SCA's), Higher Education, and Prevention Coalitions (Communities that Care, Drug Free Communities, Tobacco Control, Overdose Prevention, etc.). A few current initiatives and events CPA is working on include:
- 30th Annual "Leading the Challenge" Prevention Conference from June 9-12, 2020, in State College, PA
- PA Prevention Week from May 11-15, 2020
- PA Stop Opiate Abuse Campaign (PA STOP)
- PA Primary Prevention Media Messaging Campaign (PA START)
