5K Forward For Recovery sponsorships and donations provide funding for CVFC's Summer Youth Programming at various North Country School Districts. The program pairs evidence-based practices and adventure-based learning for a full week of skill building during the summer and weekly group sessions during the school year to foster a healthy school transition, and reduce risk for substance use.
