HEALTHY PEOPLE COALITION GIVES BACK
Bringing Hope to the World
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
WHAT WE FIGHT FOR
Based out of Gu Vo District on the Tohono O'odham Nation, the Healthy People Coalition utilizes effective prevention strategies, activities, and evidence based curriculum to promote healthful behaviors, decisions, and environments that will reduce, postpone or eliminate the problematic use of alcohol and illicit substances among minors.
The coalition is made possible through a generous grant from Cenpatico, who also provides training and resources for our evidence-based programs.
Sober Movie Nights
The Healthy People Coalition hosts free, sober movie nights each month with movies projected onto an 80-inch projection screen. Refreshments are served and a family friendly environment is enjoyed by all. These events are always open to the public!
The Healthy People Coalition hosts a sober arcade with multiple gaming stations for youth of all ages. As with our sober movie nights, refreshments are served in this family friendly environment, and we encourage all community members to come out and enjoy the arcade!
Too Good for Drugs Curriculum
Each week, the Too Good for Drugs curriculum is taught in our after-school program. The curriculum is a family of comprehensive drug and violence prevention programs designed to mitigate risk factors and build protection against problem behaviors. The program is tailored to kids of different age groups, and questionnaires are given at the beginning of the school year, and at the end, in order to measure how perceptions about drugs and alcohol have changed.
Community engagement is an integral part of the HPC’s commitment to the health and well-being of the Gu Vo District. To that end, the HPC participates in multiple events throughout the year, on and off the Tohono O’odham Nation. Events like the Tohono O’odham Nation Rodeo and Fair, Gu Vo District Day, Youth Conferences, and various others, are a great way for the HPC to connect with the community. We set up booths, and hand out promotional items and information about drug, alcohol, and suicide prevention. This also gives us an opportunity to discuss what concerns members of the community have about these issues.
