PASS (Prevention Awareness Support Services), Formerly PVFF, Launches New Prevention Programs​

Guiding Good Choices is a substance use prevention program developed for parents of youth ages 9-14. Parents will learn specific strategies such as teaching their children refusal skills for promoting healthy behaviors and reducing risks that predict adolescent health and behavior problems.​

Class Action is an evidence-based prevention program that looks at the real-world social and legal consequences involving teens and alcohol. Teens are divided into Class Action legal teams to prepare and present hypothetical civil cases in which someone has been harmed as a result of underage drinking. ​
