Safe Home / Safe Parties Pledge
Did You Know That Teens a Dying from Binge Drinking?
Nearly 5,000 young people die each year from poisoning due to alcohol consumption. Learn more on this topic from our March 2013 Newsletter.
The median age at which children begin drinking is 12 (NIDA, 2002). Young people who begin drinking before age 15 are four times more likely to develop alcohol dependence than those who begin drinking at age 21. Will you help to change these statistics?
About The Safe Homes Safe Parties Campaign
Safe Homes/Safe Parties is a underage drinking prevention initiative developed by Informed Families and implemented by parents of teens and preteens to ensure that drugs, alcohol and cigarettes will not be permitted at parties held in their homes and discouraged at parties in their community. While Safe Homes/Safe Parties is a year-round program, it is most prevalent during the spring months - when school proms and graduation ceremonies occur.
Parents take ownership of the program by signing the following pledge:
Take the Safe Homes Safe Partie pledge between March 11, 2013 and April 30, 2013 to support underage drinking prevention and you'll automatically be entered to win a $50.00 Publix gift card!
