Youth to Youth (Grades 7 and 8) All Junior High students are welcome to join the Ottawa Hills chapter of Youth to Youth.  Youth to Youth was founded in 1982 in Columbus, Ohio, as a community-based drug prevention and youth leadership program focusing primarily on middle school and high school students. The goal of its many projects is harnessing the powerful influence of peer pressure-- making it a positive force that encourages young people to live free of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs.

All members of Y2Y are expected to perform at least two service projects throughout the school year. Members may choose from those planned by Y2Y or one of the two projects can be done outside of the group. Advisors keep track of all member service requirements, and should be contacted if an outside service activity is performed. It is important to the organization that all members learn to give back to the community and to experience the enjoyment that comes from giving to others.  Contact Jennifer Sherman for more information.
