give kids what they need
Just Say Yes is a commitment to our young people to to create conditions that set them up for success.
Our coalition works together to alter the environmental factors that make kids more or less likely to engage in risky behaviors.
Factors like access to fun, healthy activities when school’s out, and parents and caregivers that are connected, supported and informed about what kids need to thrive.
Use data to drive action
The Franklin County Youth Survey is an anonymous, in-depth survey that gives us a detailed picture of what’s going on with kids in Franklin County right now.
92% of public school 7th & 8th grade students in Franklin County took the 2021-22 survey.
We’re working with parents, schools, local government and businesses to translate data into action for our kids.
Get all hands on deck
The changes our children deserve can only be accomplished by working together in new ways.
Our coalition partners – together with youth and family representatives – have committed to fostering healthy environments that help kids thrive.
