Ending Impaired Driving Begins with Underage Substance Prevention

At MADD, we know that our hopes for a safer future are riding on you. Did you know that underage drinking contributes to more than 4,300 deaths among people below the age of 21 in the U.S. each year*? By getting today‚Äôs youth off to a good start, we are taking a giant step toward fulfilling our vision of a future with No More Victims®. That's where you come in! We want to say THANK YOU! Thank you for taking a stand, setting the example and making the commitment not to drink alcohol or use marijuana until the age of 21 and to never ride with an impaired driver.

MADD is excited to provide you this toolkit in order to help prevent underage drinking and marijuana use and the many lives lost as a result each year. The activities and information within this toolkit is great to use around Red Ribbon Week, Homecoming, sports games, fall festivals, parties, and holiday breaks.
