YOUTH AMBASSADORS OF DELAWARE COUNTY

This is a performance-based team comprised of high school leaders who spread our commitment to an alcohol, tobacco, and drug-free lifestyle through interactive presentations which use a variety of talents including, dance, skits, instruments, vocals, public speaking, drawing, etc. to help enhance our drug-free messages at school and community events.   Our team is sponsored by the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council Delaware, a non-profit organization, whose mission is to plan, strengthen, and coordinate community efforts in the areas of alcohol and drug prevention, treatment, and law enforcement.
