About UYLC

Building a Youth-Led Movement Focused on Prevention

Our Mission

The mission of the Upriver Youth Leadership Council is to empower youth and adults to build a healthier community through prevention leadership.

Goals For Our Community

Our goals are about serving the community in Kamiah and Kooskia, ID.

We aim to prevent alcohol and substance abuse by inviting youth to belong to something positive. Together they can build resilience.

We want to foster leadership opportunities for our youth and amplify their voices in our community! Our youth has to lead future generations into a healthier future, and we want to give them the tools to do it.

We build the infrastructure to put prevention into practice. We've purposefully created collaborative and community-supported programs.

The Youth Advisory Board (YAB) has been absolutely phenomenal to work with. Each member has different talents that they bring to the table, and they all have the same goal- to help their peers occupy themselves with clean, wholesome activities while staying away from substances.
We just had a presentation by Lt. Sam Ketchum, Idaho State Police, Alcohol Beverage Control about drug awareness. It makes me so grateful that you are involving my sons in YAB. It’s overwhelming sometimes as a parent to know of all the things out there I need to warn my kids about. It makes me feel better knowing you and UYLC are helping educate my kids and our youth. So thank you.
I believe that we are much stronger together. Serving with UYLC gives me a chance to work with other like minded community members who believe that we can make a difference for our youth.
Serving with UYLC is incredibly rewarding for me. using my life experience to give back and help young people make better choices and just being part of the solution today is what it’s all about.
