The mission of Project Clean is to spread awareness of youth substance abuse and mobilize youth to take the lead in its prevention. Project Clean hopes to do this by 1) providing resources to youth who struggle with substance abuse as well as youth who hope to alleviate it in their communities, parents, and educators, 2) conducting projects that raise awareness of the issue within Arizona including but not limited to a) visiting treatment centers and documenting experiences and insight gained from the visits, b) participating in nationwide anti-substance abuse campaigns, and c) creating original products (in the forms of writing and videos) that empower youth in Arizona.
Project Clean was established in March 2016 by Meena Venkataramanan. The 2016 goal is to create or participate in at least 10 original projects that help fulfill the mission of Project Clean by December 31, 2016. As of September 2016, the goal has been achieved, and twelve original projects have been created and/or completed:
1) I've Got Something Better (the video was made in the last days of 2016 to celebrate the new year and the 2017 launch of AZGOYFF's "I've Got Something Better" campaign)
Throughout the course of the year, more projects will be created and/or completed in order to make a positive difference within the community.
