Youth also can play a pivotal role in underage prevention! They can stand up as the leaders who make it “ok” to say no to alcohol.
MADD helps youth explore the real, short- and long-term impacts of drinking underage, including how it damages their brains and the long-lasting social consequences through interactive presentations delivered by certified facilitators. MADD also offers tools directly to teens to encourage them to use the power they have to keep themselves and their friends safe.
Through this valuable program youth not only learn why it is important to stay away from alcohol and other drugs, but they also learn real life strategies.
In many areas, MADD representatives are available to speak at schools, churches, or other community gatherings. You can click the button below to request a presentation in your area, or to connect with a local office if you are interested in becoming a trained facilitator.
Encourage your kids to explore our teen-focused Power of You(th) site today so they can use the power they have to save lives!
