Power of You(th)

October is typically when teens talk about alcohol and drug prevention at school. Don’t miss this vital opportunity to prevent underage drinking.


The toolkits below are for others in your community who want to protect teens from the dangerous consequences of underage drinking. MADD has toolkits specifically designed for Student Leaders, Educators, School Resource Officers, and Community Partners.


Power of You(th) Teen Booklet

We asked teens what they thought of our Power of You(th) Booklet – and they shared insight into what REALLY motivates them not to drink, what role peer pressure plays, and how parents impact their decisions. So, we are pleased to share our NEWLY revised Power of You(th) Teen Booklet.


Ending drunk driving begins with preventing underage drinking

At MADD, we know that our hopes for a safer future are riding on tomorrow’s drivers. By getting today’s youth off to a good start, we are taking a giant step toward fulfilling our vision of a nation without drunk driving. That’s why we’re focused on tackling underage drinking, a problem that threatens the safety of our kids and endangers entire communities, now and down the road.

Will you join us to help education the next generation?


Two out of three teens DON’T drink

And that’s a powerful message teens need to hear. Between our country’s drinking culture alcohol ads aimed at teens, and the general stress of peer pressure, teens need help understanding that everyone isn’t drinking.

The power of a Yes! You’ve committed to bringing a Power of You(th) presentation to your school, church, or organization. Now, all you need is approval? We can help with that. Here are three key messages to make the case for approving a Power of You(th) presentation.
  • The presentation can be offered in an auditorium or classroom setting.
  • It is perfect for both middle school and high school.
  • The presentation combines multimedia and a game format to keep kids attention.
  • The presentation is designed to be about 45 minutes, but trained presenters can make that presentation longer or shorter to meet your needs.
  • Teens will also walk away with MADD’s education Power to Take a Stand teen booklet for more information.

How many teens are really drinking? When does the human brain finish developing? Why is it ok for adults to drink, but not teens? The MADD Power of You(th) presentation answers these questions and more in a fun and interactive way that teens and middle schoolers really get. See for yourself!

Invite MADD’s Power of You(th) program to your school, church, or organization where we can share this vital message.
