A town hall meeting focusing on underage drinking prevention comes to Maui on February 8, 2012.

The meeting, hosted by the County of Maui Department of Housing and Human Concerns, includes a presentation from members of Maui Economic Opportunity’s Youth Action Committee project, who will speak about underage drinking prevention.

The DHHC in conjunction with the Communities Mobilizing Change on Alcohol Program, are also looking for youth groups to coordinate and launch community projects throughout Maui County in April, which is Alcohol Awareness month.  Grant funding of up to $2,000 is available for interested youth groups with qualified projects.

The Town Hall meeting will be held at the MEO meeting rooms in Wailuku from 6 to 8 p.m., and will include a light dinner.


Those who want to attend are asked to RSVP to Yuki Lei Sugimura, Community Organizer for the Communities Mobilizing Change on Alcohol Coalition. Sugimura can be reached by phone at (808) 878-1888 or by email at [email protected]


The Town Hall meeting is made possible through the Hawaii Strategic Prevention Framework State Initiative Grant.  The program is funded through a cooperative agreement between the Hawaii State Department of Health’s Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division, Maui Economic Opportunity, Inc. and the County of Maui, Department of Housing and Human Concerns.
