What is CORE ?

CORE is a teen leadership group that works to change the social norms associated with alcohol and drug use. This means we want to change the way people think about underage drinking and drug use. CORE members can expect to participate in a wide range of activities including community education and outreach, public speaking, surveys, and volunteering in their community.

How can I get involved in CORE?

There are a few ways to become involved in CORE. If you know your school has a CORE club, listen to the announcements and attend their next meeting. If you are unsure if your school has a CORE club or you would like to start a club at your school, contact Drug Free Collier at

What if I have used drugs in the past?

CORE does not discriminate but we hope that you will choose a healthy lifestyle and commit to a drug free lifestyle. It’s just as much fun.
