New Spanish-language resources and underage drinking prevention during the holidays
Underage Drinking Prevention Materials Now Available in Spanish
Several new Spanish-language underage drinking prevention resources are now available. Originally available in English, the resources are adapted to connect with Spanish-speaking audiences to help community-based organizations and prevention strategists address issues around underage drinking in those communities.
Talking to Your College Student about Alcohol During the Holidays
Students are returning home after their first semester in college, and it’s a great time for parents and caregivers to talk with them about alcohol or reinforce conversations they may have had at the beginning of the semester.
The Sound of Your Voice is an animated video that encourages parents and caregivers to talk with their young adults about the consequences of underage alcohol use. The corresponding factsheet, Talking With Your College-Bound Young Adult About Alcohol, highlights the continuing influence parents and caregivers have over alcohol use decisions by their older children. It also offers tips on when and how to have the conversation.
Celebrating the Holidays Safely
Help prevent drinking and driving this holiday season with campaign resources from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Two useful campaigns for the holiday season are Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving and Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.
These campaigns provide animated graphics, fact sheets, sample news releases and op-eds, and Spanish-language materials. Share these resources with your prevention networks, and use them in your own prevention campaigns.
