Lafayette is small connected community – its residents have historically been engaged in local issues. Young people’s ideas and capacities are particularly valued, along with individuals who are experts in their community.
This community expertise, combined with the knowledge and resources in prevention science provided by the CTC process, enable the Lafayette CTC Community Board to identify solutions to issues facing Lafayette that are tailored to meet the unique needs of the community.
