A social marketing campaign that educates students on the dangers of teenage drinking.
The campaign includes a website, videos, and a discussion guide to help students facilitate classroom discussions. The goal of "Buzzcheck" is to encourage students to question common myths and assumptions about teen drinking – including the impact of peer pressure and the social consequences of drinking – and ultimately build skills to resist drinking alcohol.
"Buzzcheck" was presented at the 2010 Community Anti-Drug Coalition of America (CADCA) conference and the 2011 Office of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) conference. We know this campaign will be an exciting way for your chapter to make your voices heard, and educate your friends about underage drinking.
1. Visit the "BuzzCheck" program page on the SADD.org website.
2. Request your "BuzzCheck" kit.
3. Complete the following:
