The Quincy Communities that Care Coalition was formed in 2001. A group of concerned citizens, community leaders, parents, educators, and adolescents wanted to do something to increase awareness of drug issues and gang violence in our area to hopefully decrease future tragedies for our local families. Several alcohol/drug-free related events are held each year to provide alternative options to the local youth and share the anti-drug messaging, but with a large focus to help all of our students graduate from high school.
Quincy CTC Programs
- Strategic Tutoring: A unique approach for select students at Monument Elementary. We create Independent Learners by building up skills in students so they can complete assignments without a tutor.
- Guiding Good Choices (GGC): A set of free workshops for parents and caregivers of 4th to 9th graders. GGC will help your family handle the transitions children face as they grow older, become more independent, and make new friends.
- Life Skills: A free program for 6th to 8th graders where kids learn how to resist negative peer pressure. Filled with fun activities, Life Skills helps kids stand their own ground, communicate better, and make smart choices.
