The City of St. Louis is the fiscal agent for the Regional Response to Prevent Youth Violence, Drug Addiction and Teen Pregnancy Coalition ("Regional Response Coalition"). The goals of the project are to: 1) reduce substance use and abuse among youth and, over time, adults by addressing the factors in St. Louis that increase the risk of substance abuse and enhancing factors that reduce that risk; and 2) strengthen and expand the Regional Response Coalition and its Neighborhood Task Forces throughout the City of St. Louis and the region, and collaborate with other agencies, coalitions, and initiatives to comprehensively address the problem behaviors of youth. To achieve these goals the coalition will implement the following strategies:
1) partner with neighborhood task forces to concentrate on neighborhood intervention;
2) collaborate with National Football Foundation Center to expand academic counseling and drug prevention programming in four St. Louis public high schools;
3) partner with the St. Louis Public Schools to provide ATOD education and prevention to youth;
4) implement a 1-800 call system that will provide ATOD referral and resource information;
5) work with the juvenile court to fully integrate restorative justice programming with ATOD prevention strategies; and
