The Rural Network, a group of volunteers and leaders across Washington state who work towards building resiliency and preventing youth substance misuse in rural communities, are hosting their first annual Rural Prevention Conference September 22 – 23 at the Yakima Convention Center. 

This conference will be an opportunity for those doing youth substance prevention work in rural areas to meet in person, and share ideas for helping to create healthy, thriving rural communities free of substance misuse, focusing on strategies that work in rural areas.
