WCHS YES Youth Council Training

The Webster County KY-ASAP True Blue Coalition, YES Youth Service Center, and the Webster County Extension Agents collaborated to provide the annual youth training on August 10, 2021. The training included skill building/enhancement in teamwork, strategic planning, confidentiality, and substance misuse education.

Webster County High School students, grades 9-12, have the opportunity to apply for the Youth Council each May for the upcoming school year. The students who are selected become a part of the YES (Youth Experiencing Success) Youth Council and serve as the Executive Crew for the Webster County High School True Blue Crew.

The Executive Crew will be inviting youth from the high school to join their Youth Coalition Prevention efforts throughout the school year. Students who are interested in participating in the True Blue Crew should contact an executive crew member, Courtney Menser, or Donna Bumpus,


Earlier this month, a few of the TRUE BLUE Crew members met to learn the Chatter 4 Change podcasting process. The graduating seniors worked with younger students to provide a smooth transition for the new podcast crew. In addition to the podcast training, True Blue Crew members made Substance Prevention PSAs. Chatter 4 Change podcasts will return in late July after our crew enjoys a short summer break.
