The St. Cloud Community Alliance is a coalition with a simple mission: Making St. Cloud a better place for everyone. Our primary focus is the reduction of high-risk drinking and the associated negative impacts that it has on our community.
The issue impacts all of us across the campus and community, and reducing high-risk drinking will take all of us working together: campus leaders, city leaders, residents, students, and businesses.
The SCCA was selected to host a Town Hall Meeting to address the presentation of youth substance use. This event will include a panel discussion featuring local experts who will provide parents with information to help them understand the important role they play in preventing substance use. Experts will discuss legal implications and costs associated with alcohol and drug related violations, as well as the effects alcohol and other drugs can have on IQ, brain development and overall health. Parents will be provided with resources and tools to help them have important conversations about substance use. Each family that attends will receive a resource tool-kit full of information and resources to help them have effective conversations with they children about alcohol and other drugs.
