Mayes County HOPE was awarded the Drug-Free Communities grant in September 2015 and as a result the HOPE4Youth initiative began. The primary focus of HOPE4Youth is youth substance abuse prevention with four main areas of concern: Underage Alcohol Use, Tobacco, Marijuana Use, and Prescription Medication Abuse.
The HOPE4Youth Program, also hopes to strengthen collaboration among all related organizations to support the effort of prevention and reduce substance use among the youth in our community.

The Impact Council is a team of 7th-12th grade Pryor students dedicated to providing drug and alcohol prevention for youth. The HOPE4Youth program founded the Impact Council in 2016 as a way to help students of Pryor develop healthy habits, prevent underage drinking, tobacco use, substance abuse, and educate students in a variety of other areas. The Impact Council works to bring these philosophies into everyday life for Pryor youth.
