The mission of the Influence the Choice - Drug Prevention Alliance for Youth is the prevention and reduction of youth substance abuse within the Issaquah School District service area. The Coalition accomplishes this mission through community resource networking and strategic action planning aimed at changing community norms.
Influence the Choice (ITC) is a local substance abuse prevention alliance working for a healthy, thriving community. It is comprised of a minimum of twelve community sectors: parents, youth, schools, business owners, medical professionals, government, media, faith-based organizations, organizations serving youth, civic or volunteer organizations and law enforcement, all working together to build a healthy, thriving, drug-free community.
