Peer Educators Program: The Peer Educators Program is designed to train drug-free youth ages 13-21 to conduct trainings/presentations on life skills utilizing MJCPC resources. Our mission is to reduce risk factors that lead to alcohol, tobacco and other drug use and increase resiliency factors of youth in high-risk environments in Jackson, Mississippi through our Peer Educators.

Summer Camp: Metro Jackson Community Prevention Coalition offers a summer camp for middle and high school students utilizing Project Northland. Project Northland is based on the most rigorous alcohol-use prevention trial ever funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and was developed in a region of the country that led the nation in alcohol-related teen traffic fatalities. The program was designed by prevention researchers to delay the age when youth begin drinking, to reduce use among young people who have tried alcohol, to limit the use of other drugs, and to reduce alcohol-related problems.
