Operation Snowball is an alcohol and other drug use prevention program based in Springfield, Illinois focusing on leadership development to empower youth to lead drug-free lives. Operation Snowball is founded on the belief that youth and adults can make responsible decisions when provided with factual information and an opportunity to develop an understanding of one’s self and motivations.

Operation Snowball (Naperville Chapter) is fondly referred to as “Snowball”. It is a fun, engaging and popular youth leadership development program. 360 Youth Services partners with Districts 203 & 204 to coordinate this teen-led and adult supported program for area high school students.
Presented in a weekend retreat format in a safe and respectful environment, the program addresses challenges facing teens which help:
Presentations, workshops, activities and small group discussions all combine to empower teens to make healthy life-style decisions and have a positive impact on their peers. The name comes from the idea that, “If I have a positive impact on you, you can have a positive impact on someone else, and the effect Snowballs”. The program began as a teen and adult led alcohol, tobacco, and drug abuse prevention program, and has expended into a program that addresses many additional issues relevant to teens today.
