Zero Alcohol for Youth
None. Nada. Zero.
That’s exactly how much alcohol is okay for our youth. Underage drinking has immediate and indirect consequences.
Underage Drinking Is Harmful
The effects of underage drinking are enormous.
Underage alcohol use has been linked to other dangerous behaviors, including sexual assault, impaired driving, and suicide. Not to mention additional indirect health and safety consequences on society. While adults have the responsibility to create healthy and safe environments for youth, young people are not only passionate about these issues, they are an essential part to creating change.”
Our Zero Alcohol for Youth Academies are opportunities for youth and adults to collaborate to tackle youth alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use. These day-long events provide:
- Meaningful activities that support effective youth and adult partnerships
- Leadership and community engagement skills
- Tools to effectively create change
