Drug Free Kosciusko Coalition is comprised of community members from local schools, businesses, and organizations who believe in a drug free community and the prevention of substance use among youth. The mission of Drug Free Kosciusko is to build hope to eliminate substance use among youth. Susanne Siebrase is the coalition president. Contact Kosciusko Cares Youth Services Bureau to become involved. Our current campaign is "Talk They Hear You" and coming soon a campaign on Social Norms. The group has conducted a community survey that will assist with the creation of the Social Norms campaign.
2018 is going to be an exciting year for Kosciusko Cares as we kick
off the social norms campaign with different messages about
perceptions of alcohol use among youth.
The first message is shown in the pictures to the right
We want adults to realize that alcohol use among youth is not
widely accepted by adults, even though many adults think other
adults might support it. We want to change that perception. Our
youth in Kosciusko County are responsible kids.
We know that with parent and community support we can help
them make good choices when it comes to drinking alcohol.
As the year unfolds, you will see more of these messages in many
different places. Watch for them and comment on our Facebook
page or send us an email about your thoughts on this campaign.
Input from the community will be beneficial in showing how the
campaign is impacting the change we wish to make
