About Us

The Brattleboro Area Prevention Coalition was founded in 1990 and is a group of individuals committed to increasing the effectiveness of drug and alcohol prevention through strategies such as youth and adult education, policy changes, media and social norms marketing campaigns, advocacy, increased law enforcement, and training. We serve the communities of Brattleboro, Dummerston, Guilford, Putney, and Vernon. Join us in creating a community that fosters a safe, supportive, and healthy place for all of us to live and grow!
