About Bridging the Gaps

Bridging the Gaps (BTG) started in December of 2005 as a vision of a small group of concerned community members who came together to make positive change in Rochester around underage drinking and drug use.

Today, BTG brings together community members to bridge the gaps in prevention and early intervention of youth substance use. We address alcohol, marijuana, prescription and over-the-counter drug use and tobacco use by youth through programming and raising awareness of the realities of substance use. Those involved in the coalition want to change the alcohol and drug culture of Rochester for our youth and our future.
