About Us

York Suburban Communities that Care (YS CTC) Prevention Board is currently not active.  



In 2001, the York Suburban Communities That Care Alliance (YS CTC) was officially formed. Our purpose is to unite families, school officials, area organizations, local government, and law-enforcement agencies to nurture a healthier, safer, and more positive community. 

Our Mission

Mobilizing people and resources to protect and empower our youth and strengthen our community. 

What is CTC?

The Communities That Care system is a research-based, national coalition that fosters an approach proven to prevent and reduce adolescent risk factors, including drug and alcohol abuse, suicide, violence, school drop-out and delinquency, and teenage pregnancy.


Additionally, the YS CTC Alliance strives to promote diversity acceptance, provide school-based mentoring, and community-strengthening events. 


More information about the CTC national coalition, can be found here:  website or videos.  


The YS CTC Alliance is a community-based initiative that does not receive funds from the school district but instead relies on donations from area residents and businesses. 


YS CTC Alliance is a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization as described in section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
