The Youth Alcohol Awareness and Education Foundation, Inc. — established by Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits to fund programs that support alcohol safety and underage drinking prevention — today announced the AlcoholEdu for High School online curriculum is once again available at no cost to all public and private high schools in Miami-Dade and Broward counties in Florida, Dallas and Collin counties in Texas, and Bronx, Kings, Nassau, New York, Queens, and Richmond counties in New York for the 2021-2022 school year.
The program, which is part of a three-year commitment, will be available in these three markets through the 2022-2023 school year.
AlcoholEdu for high school, developed by education technology company EVERFI, is a 90-minute, interactive course that engages students in high school with science-based alcohol education and interactive exercises, providing an experience meant to change perceptions, motivate behavior change and support healthier decisions regarding alcohol.
The course focuses on five pillars: Knowing the Basics, Knowing Your Influences, Brain and Body, Smart Decisions, and Future Ready.
Through this scalable online program, schools can reach all students with a consistent message and empower them to make safer and healthier decisions about alcohol, the organization says.
Teachers, guidance counselors, and school administrators in the available counties who are interested in implementing this program for the 2021-2022 school year can contact the following EVERFI Implementation Managers for details:
