ADAPAO Social & Prevention Showcase: Celebrating Champions of Change!

Ohio's youth and adult prevention leaders will be gathering for an afternoon of music, food, camaraderie and networking, on October 6 from 1:00 to 4:00pm for the ADAPAO Social & Prevention Showcase: Celebrating Champions of Change, ADAPAO's annual event to commemorate Ohio's youth prevention leaders and support ADAPAO's education and advocacy initiatives.

At the event, ADAPAO will present the 2019 ADAPAO Youth Prevention Awards, honoring individual young people engaged in prevention throughout Ohio. (More information about past award recipients is available on the Youth Leaders tab.) The event also features an array of food donated by local vendors, musical entertainment, and a silent auction.

The event will also highlight youth prevention throughout Ohio via a showcase of up to eight youth-focused prevention programs presenting innovative activities and strategies to advance prevention goals in their communities.

The ADAPAO Social & Prevention Showcase: Celebrating Champions of Change will be held at Amelita Mirolo Barn in Upper Arlington, Ohio.
