The mission of Influence the Choice is promotion of mental, physical and social wellness for middle school through high school-aged youth in the greater Issaquah community. We accomplish this mission through networking community resources and facilitating strategic action planning aimed at changing community norms.
Influence the Choice - Drug Prevention Alliance for Youth (ITC) is a 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 drug-free community.
