MISSION AND HISTORY
The Healthy Teens Coalition (HTC) of Manatee County is dedicated to reducing behaviors by providing Manatee County youth with the knowledge and skills to make informed choices about their physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being.
It is comprised of a grassroots group of over 180 individuals representing more than 60 non profit social service agencies, community based health providers, the Manatee County School District, Manatee County Government, and faith-based entities.
The HTC engages young people, parents, community leaders, and policymakers. The Coalition aims to ensure that Manatee County's youth have access to the tools, education, and information that will equip them to make healthy, informed decisions, leading to a positive future.
