One of our most important programs is helping young adults establish Generation S.O.S. clubs around the country. These clubs — created within high schools, colleges, places of worship, or other community organizations — provide a sense of community where our youth can safely talk about mental health and substance use/misuse problems and concerns without stigma or shame.

Club organizers work with Generation S.O.S. leadership to arrange young, sober speakers who meet with club members to share their stories and engage in authentic question-and-answer sessions.

My son attended a meeting in New York with a friend and told me, ‘’We need to bring Generation S.O.S. to Miami.” I’m so proud to be a host family for the meetings.
