STEPS Youth Council

A way for Southington youth to make a difference in our community

The STEPS Youth Council provides high school students who live in Southington with a unique opportunity. They take the reins to serve as leaders who help their peers make healthy choices around substance use prevention, asset building, and mental health. Projects that STEPS Youth Council members have worked on include mental health crisis and resource cards, an online form to request STEPS Liquor StickersĀ®, and much more.

Our Focus on Youth

STEPS was founded in 2007 with a mission to help our youth grow up to be caring, competent and successful. We develop programs and opportunities for young people to step up and showcase their best selves.

STEPS partners with Southington Public Schools to follow an Asset Building Classrooms (ABC) model. We also have a STEPS Youth Council and a classroom-based curriculum to improve student health and safety.
