What We Do

The Seaway Valley Prevention Council has provided valuable services to the community since 1987. Agency programs provide quality prevention, community, and recovery services for residents of St. Lawrence County and beyond. Educators work with youth, parents, families, and local decision-makers to empower them to make positive changes in their lives and engage in their local communities to make long-lasting changes.
