Our Youth Movement

Empowering the Community

The Trident Taskforce is a coalition of youth around Burke County, NC. We strive to make a better community by highlighting the substance use and misuse issues challenging the youth of this and future generations. We believe the voice of the youth is powerful and that powerful voices can change the community and the world at large.


Our Mission

Our Three-Pronged Attack



Advocacy is an essential pillar of our Youth Movement. There is strength in numbers, and we work to inform and encourage others to take a stand for what they believe in. Want to learn more?


As a large movement of activists, Outreach is close to our hearts. We believe that the best solutions for society come from within, and make it our mission to build awareness so that this is a possibility across the globe.


Trident Taskforce has built an environment of support and helpful resources to make sure that Partnership is always a priority. Our success is driven by the hearts, minds, and souls of our community. Come and join us.

Digital Outreach

Learn tools needed to build a successful digital campaign. Projects will be youth-led and youth-focused. Help design social media campaigns such as web series, podcasts, memes and much more.



Active participation is an essential part of our movement’s success. Show your presence to the community by assisting in local events to bring awareness to the substance use epidemic that is hurting our community.

Be a Leader

Every individual has the ability to motivate others and inspire true change. By becoming a leader, you become a crucial part of our movement by making sure that our youth-led mission is heard and has a far-reaching, lasting impact.
