Every year, TOGETHER! honors people from the community who make a positive difference in the lives of youth.
The Awards of Excellence is an annual event co-sponsored by TOGETHER! and The Olympian at the end of each school year. It recognizes high school students for their achievements in several categories.
Each spring, TOGETHER! and a few partners offer a large conference on drug abuse in our area. Formerly called "Meth and More," the conference was renamed in 2013 to "Substance Abuse: A Community Response." Information is shared by law enforcement, prevention experts, health professionals and more on the state of substance abuse in the greater South Sound area. Participants are welcome from around the state.
In fall and winter 2010, TOGETHER! celebrated its 21st birthday by inviting the community to "Join the Party!" Our friends and partners raised birthday gifts for us in person and through interactive web pages.
May 31 is the annual, globally recognized World No Tobacco Day, encouraging 24 hours of abstinence from tobacco.
North Thurston Public Schools wrote about TOGETHER!'s participation in the 2010 event in their June 11 newsletter; click here.
Here are some events coming up soon. For more events, check out our events calendar.
