SCCUDD Structure Changes: 


At the July meeting, the Coalition discussed the current structure and voted to change the SCCUDD subcommittees. Instead of breaking the committees down by substance, committees are now formed based on the aspect of community change they focus on. The new committees are prevention, assessment/planning, implementation, and sustainability. Please see the attached diagram for what each of the committees will focus on. If you are interested in joining one of these committees please contact ddalmat@co.schuyler.ny.us for more information.

CADCA Youth Training in Orlando, FL


Representatives from the Schuyler County Coalition on Underage Drinking and Drugs (SCCUDD) just returned from Orlando, Florida where they joined nearly 2,000 substance use prevention and treatment specialists from around the world for CADCA’s (Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America) 17th annual Mid-Year Training Institute.
The week-long training, held at the Gaylord Palms, taught participants how to address one of our nation’s biggest public health challenges – drug use. CADCA’s Mid-Year Training Institute is a one-of-a-kind intensive training opportunity, offering more than 95 ninety-minute and half-day courses geared towards helping participants find solutions to their community’s toughest substance use problems.
Two of the coalition’s youth members participated in CADCA’s Youth Leadership training at the event to help them become strong community leaders and change agents.
“I enjoyed meeting youth from all over the country and hearing about the issues in their communities” said Aidan Thurston, a local rising ninth grader that attended the training.
