About Us

YOU Decide is a project dedicated to empowering individuals under 25 to make educated decisions about gambling, to increase awareness of underage gambling among parents and community influencers, and to increase community readiness to prevent underage gambling by reducing youth access to gambling.

We utilize connections at the regional and state levels to increase community readiness to prevent underage gambling and to reduce youth access to gambling through partnerships with local providers.

YOU Decide is a project of the New York Council on Problem Gambling (NYCPG) and funded by the Office of Addictions Services and Supports (OASAS).  NYCPG is a not-for-profit independent corporation dedicated to increasing public awareness about problem and disordered gambling, and advocating for support services and treatment for persons adversely affected by problem gambling. NYCPG maintains a neutral stance on gambling and is governed by a Board of Directors.
