YOUTH
Student Groups

The SUP Coalition sponsors 6 student groups in the following high schools: Becker, Big Lake, Elk River, Rogers, Spectrum, and Zimmerman.

 

The student groups plan and carry out prevention activities targeting their peers and also the community.  They want to provide an environment that fosters positive choices and leadership opportunities.  

Student Group Facts:

  • Current student groups are:

    • Becker's "Dream Team" (Drug Related Education & Awareness Mentors)

    • Big Lake's "E.P.I.C." (Encouraging Positive Influences & Choices) 

    • Spectrum's "Sobriety Squad" (Currently Inactive)

  • A school staff member at each school serves as the advisor to the group.

  • Students involved in the student groups may earn community service hours for some of their work while gaining leadership skills.

  • Membership is open to students at participating schools.  There is NO cost to join!
