"Everytime we feel tempted to give up on the battle of 'Access to Excess' (alcohol, drugs, risk-taking), we are reminded of the actions of passionate leaders of all ages, dedicated to making the world a better place, with the promise of a bright future!"

CARES’ Student Leadership Coalition is a combination of passionate, talented kids of various grades, social groups, and interests with one primary cause in common: Helping themselves and others tackle tough choices through action! Recognizing that New Canaan ranked 2nd in the state for underage drinking, and kids find it difficult to find social options on weekends that don’t include drinking, CARES' Leadership Coalition's goali is developing social alternatives and getting out the word to peers and younger students in unique and diverse ways.
