First, Who Are We?

Step Up Naugy is Naugatuck’s Local Prevention Coalition. We are a group made up of twelve community sectors (Parents, Schools, Youth-Serving Organizations, Youth, Health Care, Law Enforcement, Civic Groups, Faith-Based Communities, Media, Local Government, and Other Organizations that work with substance misuse and prevention), and concerned community members. The coalition is primarily a group of volunteers who work to keep Naugatuck youth safe, healthy, and drug-free.

Our Mission

The primary mission of Step Up Naugy is to employ effective and sustainable strategies to prevent use and abuse of alcohol and other drugs among Naugautck youth. By building a network of concerned citizens, our coalition promotes healthy, positive behaviors and relationships in our community.
