Underage Drinking Prevention
The NWDA's first-ever Youth Conference on Preventing Underage Drinking, held April 12, 2012 at Greenfield Community College, was a great success.
Following a lively, interactive presentation by Robert Hackenson on the danger and consequences of underage drinking, some 150 or more students in attendance broke into one of four workshops where they learned to produce their own video public service announcements, created materials modeled on the national Above the Influence campaign, learned from their peers how to form a Students Against Destructive Decisions group and produced their own skits with help from the UMass Not Ready for Bedtime Players.
