Beacon Street Girls
The award-winning Beacon Street Girls book series is committed to the health and well-being of ‘tween’ girls (age 9 -13). Book 7 in the series, entitled Freaked Out includes frank discussions about peer pressure and alcohol use, as well as Dr. Knight’s Top ten Reasons why drinking alcohol is dangerous for young people
Contract for Life
Students Against Destructive Decisions’ (SADD) Contract for Life asks you to agree never to accept a ride from a driver who has been drinking alcohol or using other drugs, and to always wear a seat belt. Our center suggests that you and your parents have a discussion about this contract, and make a plan for safe rides home.
Pledge for Life
SADD’s Pledge for Life is designed to keep you (age 18+) safe from either driving after drinking, accepting a ride from an impaired driver, or walking home alone. It asks you to identify 3 friends or family members willing to serve as a ‘committed other’. The designated ‘committed other’ agrees to help you get home safely if called.
