Simply put, the mission of the RAP Coalition is to bring
people of Rutland County together to prevent drug use,
tobacco use, and alcohol abuse by promoting healthy
choices for themselves and others.
The Rutland Area Prevention Coalition has been serving
Rutland County for more than 16 years. Staff attend
conferences and trainings on a regular basis and
coalition meetings are held monthly.
Our organization facilitates tobacco and substance abuse
education activities including but not limited to: health fairs,
school presentations, community events, parent education,
community meetings, focus forums, and more. We
distribute tobacco and substance abuse related materials
throughout the community and offer resource loans to
interested schools and organizations. We also encourage
municipal / systems change through education of the
benefits of policies related to decreased access to substances
and positive social norming.

Would you like Central Park in Brandon to be smoke free?
