Areas of Focus



Over the past several years, the Lafayette CTC Community Board has worked to identify the risk and protective factors that Lafayette youth are exposed to in the community.


Lafayette CTC focuses on reducing community norms favorable towards substance use and works towards increasing youth opportunities for pro-social involvement while addressing the communities needs including:  

  • mental health

  • youth spaces

  • restorative justice

  • economic opportunity

  • policy


These main areas will help us holistically make sure that Lafayette is an inclusive, restorative, equitable, healthy, and vibrant place to live for families of all walks of life.

  • leveraging existing local expertise by including partner agencies
