Connecticut Gambling and Gaming is a safe space for youth and parents to learn more about some of the risks involved with gambling and gaming and to minimize harms. We want this to be an inclusive community environment where people will feel free to help create and share content that are impactful to them

The Youth Gambling Awareness Project is an initiative sponsored by DMHAS PGS in partnership with CREC and supported by the CT Council on Problem Gambling (CCPG). Middle and high school aged youth groups from across Connecticut are invited to participate in this project. Groups will receive training and support in developing public awareness projects that focus on problem gambling awareness for peers, families and communities.
