Brevard Prevention Coalition, Inc., previously Brevard Youth Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition, operated as an informal coalition of agencies and community members since 2007 in Brevard County, FL. Recently, the organization has formalized, reorganized and intensified its efforts, becoming a corporation and 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization in 2018.

Our goal is to improve the quality of life for youth and families in Brevard County. We will work to reduce youth substance abuse, increase school-based prevention programs, increase the coalition’s ability to recruit youths to participate, host its own youth substance abuse awareness events, produce youth substance abuse prevention social marketing materials, support law enforcement efforts at reducing underage drinking, and provide more training opportunities for its membership. To do so, we aim to strengthen collaboration and coordination among nonprofit agencies, faith-based organizations, law enforcement and governmental agencies, and businesses to support the coalition’s efforts. Through the collaboration of these local organizations, we expect to see long-term, positive results in Brevard County.
