The influence of teachers is profound.
They help guide their students, not only through the learning process, but by also being an overall positive influence on their development as young adults. Alcohol is an important topic to discuss with your class as it directly affects their development and ability to learn. ZeroProof is a resource for teachers, parents, and students to get the facts and learn strategies for combating underage drinking. By opening up the conversation in class, you can give your students the facts on the dangers of underage drinking, provide them with resources, and get help for students who might directly be in danger themselves. See how your involvement can contribute positively to changing how we all think about underage drinking.

“The teaching mission is complex and diffcult, and yet oh-so-vital. Teachers can never declare ‘Mission Accomplished,’ because they are a bridge, not an endpoint, for all the boys and girls who come into their lives. Their involvement doesn’t begin or end at the classroom door.”
