ZeroProof is a campaign to bring awareness to the dangers of underage drinking. Targeting teens, tweens, parents and teachers, ZeroProof provides resources and engages youth to take ownership of their decisions. It encourages them to become peer supporters in the effort to stop underage drinking and choose their own way. Alcohol can be safe and fun for adults, but when used by children, whose brains are still developing and who are going through volatile emotional growth, the consequences can be dangerous and long term. For teachers, we have provided lesson plans for both health and art education classes that incorporate the ZeroProof message. Developed in collaboration with the Albuquerque Public Schools, the curriculum satisfies the standards and benchmarks for New Mexico for the appropriate grade levels.

These lesson plans satisfy many benchmarks and performance standards for health education in the state of New Mexico. The lessons are designed to educate students on the dangers of underage drinking by providing facts and resources while engaging them to participate and interact in situations that can empower them to make good choices. All lesson plans can be customized to fit your class’ needs.
The lesson plans below are fun ways to incorporate ZeroProof into art curriculum while satisfying many standards and benchmarks. Bottles and cans of alcohol always state on their labels the amount of alcohol in the beverage. For example, a typical beer might be 12% alcohol, therefore it’s referred to as 12-proof. We want teens to keep their bodies clean, so they will be ZeroProof! By encouraging self-expression through visual and literary art, students will promote their personal visions of abstaining from alcohol and become ambassadors against underage drinking. All lesson plans can be customized to fit your class’ needs.
