Youth Coalition

1LIFE: Learn, Inspire, Fulfill, Empower

1LIFE is the Northport-East Northport Drug and Alcohol Task Force Youth Coalition. We are a group of Northport High School students dedicated to making our community a healthier, happier place by raising awareness about drug and alcohol use and mental health. From our annual Wellness Week in the spring to October’s Color Run, we work hard to further our mission to learn, inspire, fulfill and empower within the community, and with people of all ages. — Maya Jordan, Northport High School student
