Culture of Change

Missouri Safe and Sober is a free and effective program that educates students on the dangers of drugs and alcohol while reinforcing positive decision making and responsibility.

Students participate in a video-based presentation that demonstrates the consequences of underage drinking. Students are then asked to sign a pledge to remain drug and alcohol-free until age 21. Positive peer pressure and support from parents and teachers holds students accountable to their pledge and creates a culture of change.

Missouri Safe and Sober engages parents with information about the dangers of drinking, as well as tips on setting limits and expectations for their teen about underage drinking.

“We chose to use Safe and Sober because it has been proven to be an effective program to use to bring schools, parents and students together in the fight against underage drinking.”
– Mickee Anderson, Counselor South Iron R-1

Safe and Sober creates a heightened awareness in the lives of high school
regarding constructive decision making. While our culture is glorifying
destructive decisions, Kurt Larson and the Safe and Sober campaign challenges our
students to do it right!

I have seen the Safe and Sober program make a real and meaningful impact on my
students. While sometimes it seems like young people are desensitized and
unresponsive to positive messages in the schools, Safe and Sober has been that rare
program that hits home with students.
