Project ALERT at a Glance
A skills-based curriculum that teaches teens how to say “NO.”
Each day, America’s teenagers are bombarded with misleading messages about drugs. Glamorized by media and endorsed by peers, the consequences of drug use and experimentation are dangerously disguised, and often hidden altogether.
The reality is that drug use can alter a teen’s life forever. That’s why every student should be given the tools to make a decision against using drugs - and the best place to give them those tools is your classroom.
Easy to adopt. Proven to work.
Project ALERT is a free classroom-based substance abuse prevention program for 7th and 8th graders that is proven to reduce the experimental and continued use of drugs.
Through a series of comprehensive lessons, Project ALERT motivates students against drug use, cultivates new non-use attitudes and beliefs, and equips teens with the skills and strategies they’ll use to resist drugs.
