Butte Youth Now Coalition


The Butte Youth Now Coalition is a gathering of community leaders, stakeholders, and youth who convene to strategize solutions and make commitments to support prevention efforts aimed at reducing alcohol, tobacco, drugs, and violence in all communities and cultures throughout Butte County.

Butte Youth Now Coalition focuses on policies, ordinances, and codes which support enforcement efforts and provide additional funding and resources. Since being officially recognized as a Drug Free Community Coalition in 2006 Butte Youth Now has become a leader in Butte County in implementing environmental strategies that have been proven effective in reducing youth access to alcohol and underage and high risk drinking.

With the Opioid Crisis effecting not only our nation but our local community, BYNC has been actively working with local partners towards prevention education and messaging to youth and families. Through educational presentations, public safety campaigns, trainings and events and work throughout the community, we are determined to reduce Opioid misuse and abuse amoung young people in our county.

The Butte Youth Now Coalition Meetings are held the second Thursday of every month from 3pm-5pm at Enloe Conference Center in Chico. For any information or questions, please contact Amelia Storm at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
