HELP US HELP YOUTH THRIVE
Your generous donation will help us reach thousands more young people in schools and homes across the United States and give them the skills to make the right choices and live life well.
America is facing an addiction epidemic. According to The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse, 3 out of 4 adolescents have already used addictive substances. Half of these youth have used addictive substances in the past month. Furthermore, 9 out of 10 addictions begin in the teen years.
Research shows that if young people are directly engaged around the issue in a compelling way by people they look up to and trust, they are much less likely to choose drugs and alcohol. In fact, if middle schoolers choose not to consume drugs and alcohol, they are 14x less likely to ever become addicted.
