Healthy YOUth (Youth Opportunities Unlimited)

  • logo

    Healthy YOUth (Youth Opportunities Unlimited) is a drug prevention program for dedicated, hard-working, and responsible Z-BTHS students who have chosen to be drug-free and who want to share that commitment with others in their community.

    Healthy YOUth is more than just a club.  The program is sponsored not only by Z-BTHS, but by the Lake County Health Department and the Zion-Benton Coalition for Healthy Communities. Healthy YOUth members will meet twice a month to keep up-to-date in drug prevention, learn leadership and presentation skills, get to know each other, and to have fun!   

    We hope you will consider joining us for the 2019-2020 school year!
