To be honest with you I am not sure that there is a career path that leads to “youth prevention”, although since I started teaching five years ago a number of people have been in my classroom to do these presentations. Most are police officers or people who work either at a shelter or outreach center for children. In order to do that with an associates degree I assume any social science would do the trick. If I were you I would call around to see if I could find a center near me and start volunteering as soon as possible and then ask around there.

Good Luck.

I don’t think you could get hired in a school just to teach that. You would have to be like a general health teacher or something and teach that as a unit. The better way to go would be to get a job with an organization that advocates for teens and schools would contact the organization to hire speaker to come in and do assemblies and things like that. You can do a lot of neat things for/with teens by working with an organization instead of in a school. Search online for youth or teen organizations in your town.

As a side note, it will always be easier to get a job with a bachelors instead of just an associates. And if you did end up wanting to teach in a school, you would definitely need a bachelors and maybe even a masters depending on what state you live in.
