Citrus County Street Team
The Citrus County Street Team is a group of prevention partners from several agencies and organizations who are committed to youth prevention in Citrus County. While focused on teens mainly, the Street Team’s goals are to help educate both children and parents about ways they can stay healthy, happy, and safe.

Although the Street Team is not an independent organization, it utilizes the partnerships between the agencies, as well as certain initiatives that these organizations are already implementing. Street Team members work together on projects such as the Friday Night Done Right, Unity Day(Bullying Prevention Month), Red Ribbon Week, Prom Promise, Teen Town Hall, and Camp Rise.
