WORKING TOGETHER TO CREATE A WORLD WHERE UNDERAGE DRINKING ENDS, AND LIVES DON’T.
Dear Student Leader:
Thank you for downloading the Power of You(th) ® October Activation Toolkit provided by Mothers Against Drunk Driving ® (MADD). This toolkit contains ideas created and approved by teens for teens.
MADD is excited to provide you this toolkit of fun activities for October Activation in order to help prevent underage drinking and the many lives lost as a result. These toolkits are great to use around Red Ribbon Week, Homecoming and other football games, fall festivals, parties and breaks, or Halloween. Included you will find: • October Activation Fact Sheet (great for classroom discussions or morning announcements) • Group Activity Ideas (work with a student group to make the most of these ideas) • Power of You(th) Information • Tips for Saying NO • Sample Social Media Posts • “The Power to Take a Stand,” a booklet to educate and empower teens to take a stand against drinking underage and to never get in a car with someone who has been drinking • Red Ribbons • Power of You(th) Red Wristbands • Posters and Pledge Cards This year, MADD offers a twist on pledging to put off alcohol until 21, #ProtectUrFriends . Encourage your friends to take a selfie with a #ProtectUrFriends card and post it on their favorite social media site with this hashtag. Join students around the nation who, like you, are committing to be alcohol free until 21. Let’s work together to kick off a fantastic school year by empowering other teens and your community to take a stand against underage drinking! If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org , and we will try to help you in any way we can. Print or download and share this toolkit with other students and invite them to join your efforts. Contact a local MADD office, who may be able to provide additional resources, such as:
