Grand Rapids In Prevention (G.R.I.P) Coalition is made up of community members from 13 different sectors. This coalition helps fulfill the goals of Rapids Rising, in hopes of reduce and delaying underage alcohol use, as well as making a change in the community.  

Meetings are held the 4th Monday of each month in the Grand Rapids High School Library. Becoming part of the GRIP Coalition shows you are committed to inspiring healthy decisions in young people. You can help make our community safer for you, your family, and all!
