Annually since 2005, the VCYC has hosted the Positive Alternatives Conference for 6th graders from Vilas County and MHLT located in Oneida County.
VCYC has provided a list of youth activities throughout Vilas County so that youth will be able to be active to prevent them from using alcohol and drugs.
VCYC has partnered with two other coalitions in Vilas County, the Healthier Community Action Team and the Minobimaadiziiwin Coalition both located in Lac du Flambeau. Another partnership has developed with the substance abuse prevention coalitions located in Oneida and Forest County as well as the Public Health Departments in Vilas and Oneida Counties. Strategies to prevent substance abuse are implemented to address the opioid epidemic and underage drinking.
