Chesterfield Alliance for Positive Youth



OUR MISSION:

To promote an alcohol, tobacco, and other drug-free lifestyle for the youth of Chesterfield through alternative activities, events, and information in order to foster the ability to make positive choices.

We are a group of Chesterfield residents, business AND civic leaders, and other concerned individuals who are working to identify and implement ways to stop the abuse and illegal use of alcohol and other drugs in the Chesterfield area. We strive to prevent alcohol and other drug abuse among Chesterfield residents and to encourage and support schools, parents, law enforcement, business, and other organizations in their efforts to end alcohol and other drug abuse. We encourage these groups to take a proactive stance in preventing alcohol and other drug abuse in the Chesterfield area.
We are an active group committed to providing alternatives for our youth, keeping residents informed, and insuring a healthier, drug free Chesterfield.
