Brooklyn YAS Coalition

The Brooklyn YAS (Youth Against Substance Misuse) Coalition is committed to creating community-level change to prevent substance misuse in LGBTQ+ youth in Brooklyn, specifically in the neighborhoods of Crown Heights, Flatbush, and East Flatbush. We are a coalition of organizations, agencies, businesses, parents, and LGBTQ+ youth that works to support LGBTQ+ youth. We seek to promote safe, affirming spaces; instill physical and psychological safety; reduce family conflict and rejection; and increase community attachment for LGBTQ+ youth by applying environmental prevention strategies. If you are interested in becoming involved, please contact Lisa Koffler at elisek@camba.org; (347)889-1326.
