The New London Community & Campus Coalition (NLCCC) was established in 2003. NLCCC was created when the community joined forces to create a coalition to address issues of underage drinking and substance abuse.
In 2010 NLCCC received funding from the Drug-Free Community (DFC) grant, which was awarded to expand the coalition’s work to include alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and prescription drugs. NLCCC was again awarded the second phase of the same DFC grant in 2019 to continue the Coalition’s efforts against underage substance use in the community.
Unique to the efforts of NLCCC is a community-based environmental approach that calls for all members of the community to engage in the process of assessment, goal setting, program implementation, and evaluation.
NLCCC challenges itself to support a culturally diverse society that promotes a healthy, vibrant, and productive lifestyle for all its members.
To engage the New London Community in combating mental health, substance abuse and risky behaviours that will result in a healthier and brighter future of our NL youth.
Adolescent Learning & Leadership Institute (ALLI) brings teens together from across the region to become educated on current health issues and develop leadership skills.
Students also learn about community prevention initiatives that are aimed at reducing substance abuse and other risky behaviors. ALLI empowers young minds, educates them on contemporary issues, and engages them in leadership opportunities in their communities.
Dream it! Believe it! Live it!
“Learning how to make positive choices in life will go a long way. We learn not only how to help ourselves but influence others positively.”
“I have a unique opportunity to meet students from other schools, all here for a common cause: institute good decision making in our schools.”
“Prevention isn’t simply about knowledge, it’s about changing behavior.”
“ALLI gives me something incredibly valuable: a place to see what other kids my age think on issues I care about and the tools to handle them.
