ACES (Avon Coalition for Every Student)

The Old Colony Y Easton Branch supports the Avon Coalition for Every Student (ACES). ACES is a non-profit, community driven coalition consisting of individuals, agencies, businesses and organizations. ACES is focused on prevention and early intervention, through educating the youth of Avon about the real dangers and consequences associated with drug and alcohol use. The ACES program sends a clear, simple yet powerful message by empowering our youth to make healthy, positive lifestyle choices to remain substance free. We strongly believe that through parent education, community support and peer leadership, the youth within our community will have the opportunity to make good, informed choices on this very important issue.
