Our mission is to prevent and reduce alcohol and drug use among youth by engaging in environmental strategies, programs and activities that create a safe, healthy and drug-free Oceanside community.
Oceanside SAFE Coalition along with our incredible Youth Council are raising funds throughout the month of November to aid in our mission of preventing and reducing underage substance use in Oceanside. Your donations will go toward the various environmental strategies, programs and activities that help create a safe, healthy and drug-free community!
We are so excited to announce the dates for our "Active Parenting of Teen's" Winter 2024 Session!
This evidence based workshop is offered in both English and Spanish, and COMPLETELY FREE for Parents of Oceanside High School and Middle School students.
Registration will open at the end of December 2023

Thanks to our funding from DFC (Drug Free Communities), Oceanside SAFE Coalition has been able to bring the NY State Alcohol Training Awareness Program to local businesses within our community free of charge.
With ATAP Training and Certification, employees learn their rights, responsibilities, and liabilities regarding underage and intoxicated customers. Stores establish a standard policy to address checking IDs and supervising their premises, as well as learn to recognize valid forms of ID.
Collectively, through this SAFE campaign licensed premises can play a large role in creating a safer Oceanside for everyone!
