Municipal Alliance

Hackensack Municipal Alliance strives to coordinate and support the efforts of community members, agencies, and programs to promote activities designed to create and establish an environment of free of substance abuse and thereby facilitate the positive development of our youth and all families.

The vision for the Hackensack Municipal Alliance is a healthy environment free of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs. The Hackensack Municipal Alliance sponsors programs in the middle and high school.

The Alliance sponsors students to the New Jersey Elks Peer Leadership Conference every February as well as sponsoring students to attend Inspire Sports Camp. The alliance also supports a Karate program for at-risk children as well as a summer soccer program.
