BeFreePima is the CPC's peer to peer youth substance misuse prevention group comprised of youth from all over including those from City High and the City of South Tucson. The youth work hard all year facilitating groups, running workshops, working at outreach events, volunteering, and more.

BeFreePima is currently working on expanding opportunities for youth in leadership and hopes to enroll them in a Leadership Retreat through the UA Outdoor Rec programs. This will be a great way for them to get out of town, go camping, and engage in educational/fun activities to further their capabilities and fuel their passion for the work they do.Please donate if you can and share with your friends, families, networks, and contacts: HERE
