Mirror is active in helping several communities combat substance abuse among youth populations. Our innovative Youth As Resources program provides challenging engagement for youth in their local communities which leads to a lower incidence of alcohol and drug use in the early teen years. We have operated a successful YAR program in Hesston, with support from the Kansas Health Foundation. Today, Mirror has launched a YAR program in all of Harvey County with support from the United Way. Further, Mirror operates the Wichita Mayor’s Youth Council with financial support from the City of Wichita. Similar to YAR, the Mayor’s Youth Council is designed to engage youth in positive aspects of their community.
