Welcome to Voyager Youth Program!
Voyager Youth Program seeks to inspire the youth of Ouray County to achieve healthy lives through prevention education and experiential activities with a purpose.
We work in partnership with local schools and other organizations to create a community that encourages healthy choices and helps youth to avoid substance abuse and other risk behaviors.
News & Prevention Resources
Who knows best how to help youth make healthy choices around tobacco, marijuana, and alcohol? Youth do! That's why Voyager is developing a Young Health Advocates Team at each school district to develop the best responses to local Healthy Kids Colorado Survey data. Participants will deliver a customized prevention campaign in their school. Do you know a 6th-12th grader in either Ridgway or Ouray School Districts who might be interested in this leadership opportunity? Just have them call our office for more information: 970-626-4279.
