PASA (Prevent Alcohol and Substance Abuse) Youth Program

The PASA Youth Program provides outreach to Hispanic youth ages 12-17 to address and prevent alcohol and substance abuse within our Latino Sussex County communities.  Our goal is to provide support to our Latino youth as they advance from adolescence into adulthood without the use of alcohol or drugs.  We provide prevention educational sessions, storytelling for empowerment, extracurricular recreational youth activities, mentoring, and a family festival in June.

For more information about our PASA Youth Program, contact our Program Manager, Maria Porter, or our Prevention Specialists, Anita Costales at, and Maria Porras at or at (302) 854-9262.
