Outrage Youth Group


OUTRAGE, Utah County’s youth-led (ages 12-18) advocacy and prevention group.


The OUTRAGE mission is to empower youth to fight back against tobacco, nicotine, alcohol, marijuana, and prescription drug misuse by using effective prevention strategies and advocacy.


OUTRAGE seeks to empower peers and communities by effectively communicating about health issues. Youth advocates understand the importance of teamwork and inclusivity.


  • Fall Retreat: A day to improve relationships, communication, and advocacy skills with the youth group
  • Opinion Dinner: Educating Senators, Representatives, City Officials, Board of Health Members, and Commissioners of Utah County about upcoming bills that impact youth
  • Capital Day: Spend a day at the Utah State Capitol during a legislative session
  • Leadership Summit: Gather with other youth across the state to learn and train about prevention and advocacy work.


Meetings are a chance for youth to plan events, train, and learn more about what can be done in the community. OUTRAGE has monthly meetings on the first Tuesday of each month from 6:30-8:30 pm, with an in-person and virtual option. In-person meetings will be held at the Health and Justice Building in Provo, Utah.
