For Our Youth

The GRAAB Coalition was formed as a part of the Safe Schools/Healthy Students (SSHS) Initiative for Bradley County during the implementation of this $8.7 million federally funded grant. It was designed to be an educational arm to help promote substance abuse prevention, primarily among youth. We have since expand our efforts to include adults.

Our efforts today include educational programs for all ages, as well as support for partnering organizations, like our Summer Sessions with the Cleveland Family YMCA.
