Youth Taking Action for Sustainable Changes on Underage Drinking

Event date: 
July 25, 2013 03:00 pm - 04:15 pm EDT
Underage Drinking Enforcement Training Center (UDETC)

Youth Empowered Solutions (YES!) youth focus on effective ways to prevent underage drinking.  This National Electronic Webinar will focus on two of their campaigns which support environmental changes that prevent youth access to alcohol.  One campaign focuses on strategies that eliminate underage access to a group of products called “Alco pops”.  The presenters will provide a description, overview, and trends of these products.  Another initiative, Talk It Up. Lock It Up!™,  focuses on  eliminating underage access to alcohol in private residences.  By having adults consider how they play a role in properly monitoring and securing alcohol in their homes, they can prevent youth access and keep young people safe.
