The Path to Prevention
The SafeLaunch mission is to prevent early first exposure to alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs by raising awareness adolescents are up to six times greater risk of developing the disease when exposed. We believe the best path is through peer-to-peer education and offering alternative healthy challenges, which help develop passion, critical thinking, communication skills, and leadership in our youth.
The Art of Prevention
The Media $500 Contests invite secondary students to produce compelling art and media that illuminate the risk of early alcohol, tobacco, and other drug experimentation to encourage healthy life choices and behaviors.
Rotating through music, video, art, photography, and writing, the contests allows youth with varied interests and strengths to participate and earn scholarships for producing relevant and thoughtful media.
Community business partners, service organizations, and individuals underwrite the contests to show their commitment to helping launch young people into productive, healthy lives free from the chronic and often deadly disease of addiction.
