“Youth are the leaders of today” was the favorite take home message of both Averie Beckmann and Mikaela Mohr after attending the National Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C. in February of this year. Both students of Winona county were awarded a scholarship to attend the conference thanks to Winona County’s Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention. The students learned about what it takes to put prevention strategies relating to youth substance abuse into action at the five day conference.
While in D.C., students also had the opportunity to visit with their legislators to discuss the importance of funding prevention efforts. They visited Capitol Hill with thousands of other people on February 5th and enjoyed touring the city in the midst of impeachment hearings. Other events the students enjoyed included touring National Harbor, MD and riding The Capital Wheell. All of their food, travel, and lodging expenses were covered by Winona County ASAP.
Mikaela Mohr is excited to bring the “Strategic Prevention Framework” to her local initiative called “#IBelieveYou” where she advocates for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence in Winona county. Mohr, as a student of Winona Senior High and Winona State University with an interest in public health, is looking forward to potentially working for CADCA as a youth trainer for National Leadership Forums of the future!
Averie Beckmann, upon returning home, was selected to serve on Winona County ASAP’s Board of Directors as the Youth Sector Representative. She is excited to bring her perspective to the table and grow her newly found excitement for substance abuse prevention.
Join the Winona County ASAP team in Onalaska, WI for the “Rise Together” Community Seminar brought to us by the La Crosse County Prevention Network. Rise Together is a non-profit organization out of Appleton, WI on a mission to “prevent addiction by educating, engaging, and empowering youth to use their voices for change; breaking the silence around addiction and mental health”.
This event is free and open to the public. All ages are encouraged to attend!
