Why Attend?

The goal of the Prevention Summit is to provide an enriching and culturally competent training and networking opportunity for youth, volunteers and professionals working toward the prevention of substance abuse, violence and other destructive behaviors as well as integrating such prevention efforts with primary health care.


The prevention community in Washington State has been convening annually since the 1980s. The initial conferences were held in Ellensburg, Washington, on the campus of Central Washington University. The conferences were known as “family focus” meetings, and soon after became known as the annual “Building a Vision” conference. After a few name changes in the late 1990s, the annual conference was renamed in 1999 as the Washington State Prevention Summit.

2017 Save the Date!

The WA State Prevention Summit will be held at the Yakima Convention Center on November 3-4, 2017. We hope that you will be able to attend!
