We are an award-winning program that offers opportunities for teens around the state to learn about leadership, healthy choices, and working with others to create better communities.

Our Mission

CGTI empowers youth with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to lead an alcohol, tobacco, and other drug-free life.


We make this a reality by helping teens develop and strengthen leadership skills, educate them to lead peers to reduce the frequency of substance use and other addictive behaviors, teach to advocate for positive change within their schools, communities, and local government, and encourage healthy decision making skills.
