Empowering our youth to live safe, drug and alcohol free lives through family and community partnership.
In 2012 a group of individuals and organizations in Glenview and Northbrook came together due to a growing concern regarding youth alcohol, marijuana and prescription drug use trends in our community.
In September 2015, GNCY was awarded a Drug-Free Community Support Program Grant to promote community collaboration in the effort to reduce youth substance use.
