Our vision is to provide a community in which all area youth feel safe and connected;
a community in which youth are empowered to be healthy, resilient, and compassionate members of society;
and a community in which young people positively contribute and impact future generations.
Our mission is to promote healthy lifestyles and choices throughout our communities to benefit our youth and their families. We do this by focusing on adolescent substance use including alcohol, tobacco products, marijuana and prescription drug use by reducing youth and community risk factors, and building protective factors.
In regards to cancellations and postponements of previously scheduled CTC meetings and events due to precautions being taken due to Coronavirus (COVID-19),
All scheduled CTC workgroup meetings during this time are postponed or cancelled until further notice unless a workgroup is otherwise notified. We will continue to monitor any extensions of mandated shut-downs and will notify everyone accordingly.
All separate CTC events or events that CTC members were scheduled to have a presence at, between now and April 10th, will be cancelled.
· Planning meetings for “Written Off” and the actual showing of the film that was scheduled at the Mariner for April 7th. These will be rescheduled at a future time.
· The Crivitz Mental Health conference for April 4th - has been cancelled so anyone who had volunteered to be present for CTC will no longer need to do so.
· The Youth Mental Health First Aid training scheduled for April 2nd will be addressed by Kris Ravet separately but has also been cancelled.
· The Data presentation scheduled for Wed. April 8th at the Community Collaborative meeting will be rescheduled. All other Data presentations are postponed and will be rescheduled at another time.
All workshops that were scheduled within the next few months will be re-evaluated when we have all returned, and new dates will most likely be selected.
We understand first and foremost that during this time, the health and well-being of all of our members and their families are top priority. We also realize that once everyone is able to return to school and work, or when businesses are back to being run as they were before, you will all have a period of your own catch-up, and while CTC’s mission and vision is so very important to our community, it will take some time just to get settled and as close to back-to-normal as we all can be. Once that happens, we will establish a new timeline for our workshops and events and continue with our regularly scheduled workgroup meetings. Please take this time to care for your businesses, your families, and yourselves. Your CTC Coordinators will be working remotely from home and checking emails periodically, so please do not hesitate to contact them during this time with questions or concerns. As always, we thank you all for every minute you selflessly give to CTC and to our youth and our community. You are all so appreciated, more than you will ever know.
Be well today and always!

CTC is a non-profit organization made up of a group of concerned and caring community members. These members joined various workgroups that meet once a month to work together on making Marinette & Menominee Counties a better place to live. We focus on root causes of many different problem behaviors based off of what the youth survey and our community tells us. This only works if the COMMUNITY is involved and doing the work! No special skills or job positions are required. We just need YOU. Please consider joining us!
Are you passionate about what we're doing? Let us know! We are always looking for volunteers to help us make our vision a reality. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you. Please check out the 7 different workgroups to see which one you'd like to get involved in! No specific or required skill is needed - just wanting to make the community a better place for our youth is all you need to possess!
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you!
Your generous gift will help us fund our mission to help those in need. Together, we can make a difference.
Our workgroups usually meet once a month for about an hour...check out the workgroups tab to see when each group currently meets, check our calendar, or contact us to let us know when you have availability or where you would like to help!
