MAOLEK NA LINA'LA

LIFE IS GOOD

Maolek Na Lina’la or Life is Good is a program of WestCare Pacific Islands Inc. whose aim is to prevent and reduce alcohol and marijuana use in youth ages 11-17 in northern and central villages of Guam. 

Funded by the US Department of Health and Human Services - Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Maolek Na Lina’la is committed to building prevention and intervention strategies on Guam through various programs and outreach events in the community using evidence-based curricula such as Positive Action for the youth and for parents, Talk. They Hear You.

Maolek Na Lina’la will also highlight Champions in the community who exemplify a substance-free lifestyle. Maolek Na Lina’la hopes to shine a light on these individuals and organizations so that youth, and on a larger scale, the island community, can look up to and identify role models not only in people, but in organizations and their values.
