Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2001, $100,000)

San Ramon Unified School District is the fiscal agent for the San Ramon Valley Community Against Substance Abuse. The coalition serves the City of San Ramon and the towns of Danville and Alamo. These three suburban communities have a combined population of 104,400. The goals of the coalition are to: 1) reduce substance abuse among youth and, over time, among adults in our community; and, 2) continue to establish and strengthen collaboration and partnerships among various community groups and agencies to support efforts to prevent and reduce substance abuse among youth. To achieve these goals, the coalition will implement the following strategies:
1) change community acceptance of youth substance use;
2) increase youth resiliency and leadership skills;
3) increase in-school counseling services available to at risk youth;
4) reduce risk factors by promoting on-going healthy activities for youth and families;
5) increase community awareness about the negative impact of youth substance abuse;
6) strengthen the coalition's organizational structure; and,
7) introduce the Search Institute's 40 Developmental Assets into the community. CA/NCF
