Communities nationwide are joining together to focus on underage drinking and its effect on individuals, families, and communities. Research shows that kids who learn about the dangers of underage drinking from their parents are up to 50% less likely to experiment than kids who don't.

The Pledge for Life Partnership and the I-KAN Life Education Center Programs believe that early education about alcohol and other drugs is a necessary component to keeping kids healthy. Education about prescription drug misuse is also included in the curriculum. The Life Education Center programs and mobile units are celebrating 25 years of prevention programming in Kankakee and Iroquois counties and reach over 12,000 students annually.
