Spring Break Clarkston Style is an initiative organized by the Clarkston Coalition for Youth-in collaboration with the Clarkston Area Chamber of Commerce, Clarkston Community Schools, Clarkston PTA Council and Independence Township to promote alternative activities that encourage our students to make better choices during their Spring Break.


 As you know, Spring Break is an annual week off from school and for some, this week has become an excuse for some young people to experiment with drugs and alcohol. The Clarkston Coalition for Youth spearheaded this initiative in 2011 to help our youth make better choices by encouraging businesses to offer healthy, supervised and affordable activities to them during the week of Spring Break. The Clarkston Coalition for Youth is not responsible for the activities and safeguards associated with any events included in the 2018 Spring Break Clarkston Style promotional materials. At any time, when children are out in the community, everyone should take safety precautions and be mindful of risks. 

As additional opportunities arise, we will post below, as well as on Facebook, so be sure to LIKE us!
