Why Work Here?

Great place to work!

The Council on Alcoholism and Addictions of The Finger Lakes has been providing Prevention Education to the five county region for over twenty five years. Our prevention educators can be found in; schools, community centers, criminal justice locations, senior sites, summer camps, professional agencies, etc., providing high quality programs. We have five Education Coordinators, each charged with providing multi-faceted efforts in; Ontario, Wayne, Yates, Seneca, and Schuyler counties. In Ontario County, eight of the nine school districts host a school-based educator, employed by the council. Altogether, our prevention education program employs ten, highly qualified, experienced individuals, who work throughout the Finger Lakes region. Each educator uses Evidence-Based programs, such as Too Good For Violence, or Guiding Good Choices, to reach populations from Kindergartners, to parents. Staff is also responsible for keeping up to date on the latest drug-use trends, laws, and information to educate our students. Our goal is to provide high-quality programming that speaks to a variety of populations, in a variety of life-stages. Our hope is that the information we impart helps to prevent, reduce, or stop substance use and abuse in our communities. We are a non-profit organization, funded by our five counties, and the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services. (OASAS) As such, we do our best to accommodate most requests free of charge.
