Prevention Education Services provides programs, services, and education opportunities that focus on aspects of positive youth development, school safety, substance abuse prevention, and school climate. Prevention Education Services works with schools, community partners, and Solano County Health officials to reach as many youth as possible and provide quality programs to county schools.
These programs work to negate the risk factors students face in their lives. Risk factors are conditions which increase the likelihood of an individual engaging in destructive behaviors. The conditions underlying the problems of alcohol and other drug use, teen pregnancy, delinquency, violence, depression, school attendance and school drop-outs are addressed using research-based programs in the Prevention Education Services Department.
