NEO LogoWhile the focus of NEO is to keep young people drug and alcohol free, we believe that the most effective way to do this is by addressing root causes which contribute to drug and alcohol use and abuse.

Because of this we address many issues such as suicide, depression, body image, education, healthy alternatives and community responsibility.

Together, these efforts combine to provide a comprehensive, multifaceted approach aimed at building assets and resiliency ultimately reducing overall drug and alcohol use.

NEO LogoNEO empowers youth to make healthy lifestyle choices by providing New Events and Opportunities in a safe environment that encourages youth success and contributes to a healthier community.

NEO hosts an average of 70 events per year with approximately 7,000 people attending.

We’ve seen great success with our events, we’ve decided it’s time to build on this and work towards finding a permanent home, so instead of supporting young people just a few times a month we can be providing activities everyday of the week.
