Above the Influence is a part of the non-profit Partnership for Drug-Free Kids and their goal is to make teens aware of the influences around them along with the impact those influences have over their decisions and consequently their lives. They operate under the belief that the more aware you are of the influences around you, the better prepared you will be to face them.
The website reads,“We’re not telling you how to live your life, but we are giving you another perspective and the latest facts. You need to make your own smart decisions.”
They work with partners at three levels: community, strategic and corporate sponsors. Community partners equip schools and youth-serving organizations across the country with materials and resources to help teens stay Above the Influence. Strategic partners offer unique opportunities to engage youth. Corporate Sponsors provide funding to help Above the Influence to continue offering their program in teen drug abuse prevention.
How can I do that?
