Youth Making A Difference (YMAD)

YMAD is comprised of youth ages 11-22 who are interested in making their voices heard through community service and youth advocacy. The YMAD experience includes trainings, discussions, personal development and team building exercises, youth summits, recreational activities, snacks and fun.

YMAD works hard to make youth voices heard on public policy!

We hope you will join us as we advocate for youth issues, like substance-abuse prevention, education and youth violence. YMAD works with various agencies to provide beneficial feedback on their programs and services, affecting positive changes that benefit youth.

We are always looking for new youth leaders to help further the positive initiatives and goals of youth in Hillsborough County.

Ask, Listen, Learn: Kids and Alcohol Don’t Mix empowers kids to say “YES” to a healthy lifestyle and “NO” to underage drinking.

The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility (Responsibility.org), a national not-for-profit dedicated to fighting drunk driving and underage drinking, developed Ask, Listen, Learn alongside a team of educators and organizations specializing in middle school-aged students. This multimedia program continues Responsibility.org’s longstanding commitment to American youth, and provides kids with the necessary tools to make healthy lifestyle choices while also teaching them about the dangers of underage drinking.

Ask, Listen, Learn provides youth ages 9-12, their parents and educators with information about the dangers of underage drinking. In 2016, Ask, Listen, Learn launched science-based digital resources – including seven animated videos and lesson plans – that take kids on a journey through the developing brain, teaching them what the brain does, what alcohol does to it, and what that does to you. Teachers and parents can now feel equipped with the facts and tools to have a substantive and powerful conversation about the dangers of underage drinking.
