Teen Substance Use and Abuse in the Growing Metro of Des Moines, Iowa

Jul 13, 2017

uVoice, a youth philanthropy board comprised of twelve students from seven Des Moines-area high schools, spent 2016 identifying unmet needs of central Iowa youth, specifically issues related to substance abuse.

Students wrote and released a "White Paper" discussing the results of the survey. The group made community-wide recommendations on how to best address the issue of youth substance abuse in Polk County.
