Smithville Community In Action is a group of volunteers committed to keeping Smithville a safe place for kids. The Smithville CIA was founded in 1994 to reduce the negative effects that drug culture has on youth. The primary goal of Smithville CIA is to engage the community and its stakeholders in ongoing problem solving to prevent youth substance use and create resilient youth. The coalition's vision for Smithville is a healthy, safe community in which youth reach their full potential.
To do this the coalition has evaluated and collected data to determine what the local conditions are for youth use of substance. The coalition is an action oriented group of volunteers that annually provides training and education to members, creates annual ways to celebrate Seniors who make positive decisions, promotes positive messaging about prevention through a variety of campaigns, participates in alternative events to provide healthy supervised activities for youth in the community, provides "All Stars" prevention curriculum to the school district, and works with area retailers to make sure alcohol, nicotine, marijuana and other drugs are not being made available to youth.
The coalition is a 501(c)(3) public charity. EIN 88-1229800
