The Dennis Township Municipal Alliance is a local community substance abuse prevention effort that utilizes county, municipal, and volunteer resources in the community.  The Dennis Township Municipal Alliance sponsors many community and school based activities such as Senior Seminars, the Mentoring Program, Fun-Fit Kids/ Drug-Free Healthy- Me, After Proms, and Peer Leadership to name a few.

We value your input in the Needs Assessment process and request your participation in a short 10-15 minute survey (see link below). The survey information will provide guidance for planning the Municipal Alliance programs.
The survey is voluntary and confidential.
The survey end date is APRIL 24th.
