STEER 

Ignite Resilience

Steer is a youth and young adult program funded by SAMHSA. The program aims to expand capacity on Guam to provide substance misuse and prevention services to youth ages 13-24 through the implementation of an evidence-based substance abuse prevention curriculum, and HIV/VH Outreach, Testing, and Linkages. The program utilizes Motivational Strategies to increase the participants’ perception of risks related to alcohol and other drugs and increase their ability to self-identify potential substance-related problems. The program also aims to spread awareness through awareness campaigns, peer advocate training, and community outreach.
