TAOS ALIVE IS A COMMUNITY EFFORT TO REDUCE SUBSTANCE ABUSE AMONGST YOUTH IN TAOS COUNTY
As the months grow colder and we approach the holiday season, we are happy to look back at a fruitful year and see how we've continued to work on our Substance Abuse Prevention efforts through policy work & informing the community of risks. Along with this, we've included in our efforts to promote 'Positive Youth Events' to offer positive alternatives for teen & young adult activities in Taos.
- Mission: Taos Alive Coalition unites the community to plan and implement strategies that prevent and reduce substance use and its consequences among Taos County youth.
- Vision: Taos County youth will live in a community that is safe, secure and drug-free.
We are proud of the abundance of Youth Events Offerings that arose in 2017. To name a few:
- The High Frequency Loft opened this past year and is here to create a space for mindful movement and uplifting events. A family-friendly, substance-free atmosphere focused towards helping people raise their vibration.
- The Taos Launchpad opened this past Spring and offers to Taos a Makerspace which includes: science lab, digital media studio, and various art resources. Taos Launchpad provides high-quality, safe out-of-school-time programming for K-12 youth. LISTEN to our Taos Talks Interview with Taos Launchpad
- Dream Tree Farms which will launch next Spring, a social enterprise that is working in conjunction with the non-profit, Dream Tree Project, which provides emergency shelter for underage youth. Dream Tree Farms will be Traditional Farming within a 21st Century Model providing organic foods to local restaurants. The profits will go toward the housing for the Dream Tree Project.

- Taos Aerial Gym opened this past summer and provides a friendly and inviting atmosphere for Aerial Fabric, Lyra, Rope and Trapeze of all levels and abilities and ages.
