We are dedicated to empowering families, decreasing risk factors, and improving positive youth outcomes.
Communities that Care
Magna United Communities that Care (CTC) is a youth substance use prevention coalition dedicated to increasing positive youth outcomes and empowering families in the Magna community. We are a group of diverse stakeholders that represent community members, youth, and various community partner organizations.
Together, we worked to assess community-wide data to identify priority youth health and behavior problems to guide our implementation of community health programs and policies in Magna. We are dedicated to providing youth, parents, and families increased access to community-wide services.
Our organization is structured into four different groups.
Magna United CTC aims to connect youth, parents and families, with resources and services in their community which allow emotional, educational, and economic growth opportunities.
Key Leader Board
Our supervisory board that meets quarterly
Groups that meet bimonthly and focus on specific projects or tasks
A board that meets monthly and makes important decisions about what projects the coalition will take on
The Youth Coalition
