Our Programs and Approach

Safe Roots Foundation supports positive youth development programs that offer healthy alternatives to drug misuse and truly move the needle in reducing harmful substance use.


Our Vision and Beliefs

We envision a world where young people have the agency and support they need to make safe and healthy decisions while experiencing the joy of adolescence. We believe that teenage substance misuse prevention programs are critical, under-resourced, and in need of an update based on our current understanding of risk and addiction.


Attracting new resources for prevention

Safe Roots Foundation helps companies make smart social investments in community-based programs that help protect young people and protect their industries.
