AWARE is a community coalition that meets monthly to
discuss and implement strategies and programs to reduce the rate of alcohol, tobacco and other drug use among
Vacaville teens. AWARE is made up of community
members and agencies, including Vacaville Unified School
District and is funded by the City of Vacaville Police
Department in partnership with the Solano County Board of Supervisors.

AWARE believes that individuals & communities can be at risk of developing substance abuse issues around alcohol, tobacco and other drugs (ATOD). We use prevention strategies to help reduce the rate of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. Strategies include:

  • Community Organizing Mentoring (i.e.Boomerang Project, Youth Taking on Tobacco and more)
  • Coalition Building
  • Media Advocacy & Campaigns
  • Policy Monitoring
  • Education and Training (i.e. Parent Project, Youth Development & Responsible Beverage Service)




To advocate for wellness adolescent recovery and education of the negative consequences of alcohol, tobacco and other drug use and the benefits of a substance-free life and community.

To see Vacaville as a safe community, free of the influence of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, where all youth supported by caring adults are able to focus on positive opportunities.
