The Right Path for Washington County

The Right Path for Washington County provides activities, prevention services and programs, youth-adult partnerships, leadership opportunities for youth, and county-wide collaborations to promote healthy youth development. 

In 2015, The Right Path for Washington County had a very powerful "I am Enough" campaign. These messages were from the heart of teens speaking out to their peers on not letting drugs/alcohol use/abuse get in the way of achieving their hopes and dreams for their future. The Right Path gave away wristbands that said "I am Enough" at every dance, swim party, and forum where youth were present. 

Some of their youth were very moved by this message and asked The Right Path to provide this forum in the summer of 2016. Some of these teens had been in trouble in the past, but now  have an opportunity to be positive role models for their peers. They take their mentoring roles very seriously.
