The Working Together Coalition is a coalition made up of community members that are interested in making the communities of Northland, Pine River-Backus and Walker-Hackensack-Akeley a safe and healthy place for our youth. The Coalition is using a survey created by Search Institute called the Attitudes and Behavior Survey. This survey helps guide us with the work that we do by identifying which assets our young people have and which ones we need to increase.

Our Mission & Vision

Our mission is Working Together to prevent substance use by our youth through community collaboration, resulting in an improved quality of life. In turn, we would like to raise public awareness of the risks and consequences of the use of substances as well as things that the community can do to help our young people make healthy decisions. By making changes to the environment, we envision having a safe and healthy community, free of the impact of substance abuse and its negative effects.
