|The CETPA Prevention Programs provide prevention efforts to the Latino
community in Georgia and the knowledge about alcohol, tobacco and
other drugs, and and families and to help them make healthier choices in
order to avoid the pitfalls of the many risks present today in their lives.
CETPA provides prevention efforts targeted to Latino youth whose risk
of developing substance abuse or other dangerous behaviors is
significantly higher than others by virtue of belonging to that subgroup.
We accomplish this through community workshops, educational fairs and
dissemination of information.
CETPA provides prevention efforts through after-school programs
targeted to Latino youth. We provide gender-appropriate programs:
¡Soy Unica, Soy Latina! for girls and ¡Niño Sano, Hombre Fuerte! for
boys. Our programs deliver our own bilingual curriculum in combination
with The Mendez Foundation curriculum “Too Good For Drugs and
Violence”. In addition we teach alternative activities such as dance, music
and soccer. We also provide prevention summer camps providing healthy
alternatives for Latino youth and their families.
CETPA’s Latino Youth Prevention Program received the 2003 Exemplary
Award from the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration
(SAMHSA) in Washington D.C. as a Promising Program. Currently CETPA
is preparing to submit this program to the National Registry of Effective
Programs and Practices (NREPP).
