Since 2005, the YTF has been successful in securing state and federal grants to fully support our efforts. Over the past 13 years, we are proud that we have secured a total of over 2.25 million dollars for youth substance abuse prevention initiatives on Martha's Vineyard. We believe our success in accessing funding has been largely due to creating and maintaining positive relationships in the community and implementing proven effective strategies. As a result of YTF’s prevention work, drinking rates among MV students in grades 9-12 have dropped from 55% in 2007 to 34% in 2018. Unfortunately, however, due to changes in federal funding availability, we are currently left with a gap in annual funding of $125,000, which is approximately half of our annual budget.
Please consider making a financial contribution to the MV Youth Task Force. We are proud to live in a community that values the well being of our youth and families. We know that together we can make a difference in our children’s lives, but we need your help to continue the mission and work of the YTF. We know with the continued efforts of our committed coalition members we can continue to address the emerging challenges that face the youth of Martha’s Vineyard.
