What is a Local Prevention Council? Local Prevention Councils (LPCs) are made up of volunteers from diverse sectors in the community including the municipal sector, youth, parents, grandparents, business leaders, educators, law enforcement, faith based organizations, healthcare professionals, concerned citizens and other organizations. LPCs work to raise awareness about substance use and its impact on the community by planning and implementing educational  opportunities, local media campaigns, and other events around the topic of substance abuse prevention. In addition, they look to address policies at a local level that may have an impact on substance abuse. Participation in an LPC is an opportunity to make positive changes in your community, meet other committed community members and participate in engaging activities ranging from program planning to positive youth development activities.
