- I AM ONE campaign, which aims to reduce underage drinking and increase awareness of Tennessee’s Social Host Liability Law.
- Youth Ambassadors Coalition (YAC) at all three high schools and a number of middle schools in the county.
- Count It! Lock It! Drop It!, which encourages community members to count their medications and provides home medicine lock boxes to community members and permanent medicine disposal bins at local police departments.
