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.
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.
