Pledge Together is a volunteer drug screening program for grades six through twelve. This program is a substance abuse prevention tool for students, designed to provide encouragement, guidance, and positive reinforcement to be drug free. Pledge Together is an innovative environmental program, which differs from educational curriculum based prevention. It will run in your school every minute of every day including weekends and holidays without prevention specialist coming to your school and taking up valuable class time.
Students participating in the program will pledge to live a drug free lifestyle that carries over to multiple aspects of their lives, including home, school, community, and peer groups, which creates environmental change. Pledge Together promotes healthy decisions and behaviors regarding substance use, and the data collected demonstrates the program’s effectiveness.
Pledge Together provides students with tools to avoid substance use. Students’ belonging to a large group with the same commitment encourages them to continue living a drug free lifestyle while avoiding the pressures of peer influence regarding substance use. These students have expressed positive results from the program, including increased self esteem, improved trust among family and friends, and serving as a role model within the school district, family environment, and community.
Approximately 1560 students are currently enrolled in Pledge Together.
