Across Ages and Cultures (AAC) is a coalition of community members dedicated to preventing family violence and substance abuse through environmental strategies and evidence-based curricula.

 

Our mission is to support the efforts of the community sectors through prevention and  reduction of substance abuse among youth.

 

Our goals are to establish and strengthen the collaboration among our communities, public and private non-profit agencies, and federal, state, local and tribal governments in order to support the efforts of our community coalitions who are working to prevent and reduce substance abuse among our youth.

 

Across Ages and Cultures accomplishes this through the advocacy and environmental change with formal Strategic Prevention Framework training. Youth attend National Youth Leadership Initiative.
