What is Positively Elkhart County?
Positively Elkhart County (PEC) is a program that focuses on the positive choices teens are making in Elkhart County. Backed by science, PEC applies the Positive Community Norms approach to our work in prevention. When we celebrate young people’s positive choices, we change people’s perceptions, and as a result, we change their behaviors.
