Our Mission

Our Mission

To reduce underage alcohol and drug use by working with students and families in the community.  In 2022, Libertyville Connect broadened its mission to include youth mental health awareness. This decision was made in response to advocacy of the Youth Connect Council and student-reported data from the Illinois Youth Survey, which demonstrated a sharp increase in symptoms of depression and suicidal ideation.


This was an excellent event. I would have him [Nate Biggs] speak every year. It was very effective to have the LHS students talk . . . .The more we all learn the better off all of our kids are going to be.
