The WHEEL Council specializes in Substance Abuse Prevention Programs and HIV Prevention Services for Teens!  We work to keep kids off drugs and away from risky sexual activities. We use "Storytelling for Empowerment" to help relate real stories to kids to show them how risky behaviors can effect their lives!

Our vision is to create programs that merge traditional cultural knowledge with scientific research to facilitate healthy life choices.

Our mission is to prevent drug and alcohol use and other destructive behaviors in young people by combining storytelling, the arts, and cultural empowerment with scientific research.

The WHEEL Council is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization incorporated in Arizona.  We focus our energy on Substance Abuse Prevention Programs and HIV Prevention Services for teens.  The WHEEL Council focuses on Substance Abuse Prevention Programs and HIV Prevention Services for Teens.These programs are facilitated through "Storytelling" as a means for young people to relate to stories from their piers which gives them a viewpoint into how positive choices can change their lives.  Our goal is to work with the kids to help them make the right choices!

We offer a wide range of Storyteller Training to help facilitate Storytelling activities focused on Substance Abuse Prevention.  We also have a Product Catalog that provides Books, Pamphlets, DVDs and other resources to help create Substance Abuse Prevention programs in classrooms, clubs, and in family settings.
