Choice Pass: Preventing substance abuse through real-life education
August 4, 2016
A national example for effective community reinvestment
Crested Butte
Gunnison County is taking community reinvestment to a new level through a proactive, comprehensive approach to substance abuse prevention among hundreds of teenagers.
The Choice Pass Program, a proactive initiative first piloted by the Gunnison County Substance Abuse Prevention Program (GCSAPP) in 2011, teams students, parents, schools, businesses, nonprofit foundations and other community stakeholders with the Irwin Leadership Adventure Summit.
Its wide educational scope integrates a broad range of health, safety, social, environmental and personal topics that all converge into a multi-layered form of sustainability at the individual and community levels.
Choice Pass recently completed its first-ever summertime Outdoor Youth Leadership Program under the auspices of Crested Butte’s Irwin Guides, considered among the world’s most expert wilderness, environmental and survival professional organizations.
