MADD GEORGIA Launches Summer Enrichment Sessions for Youth

Nine weeks of programming for youth ages 12-20

ATLANTA, GA — The Georgia office of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) has developed a new initiative for the summer under our Power of Youth program. MADD helps youth explore the real, short- and long-term impacts of drinking underage, including how it damages their brains and the long-lasting social consequences through interactive presentations delivered by certified facilitators. MADD also offers tools directly to teens to encourage them to use the power they have to keep themselves and their friends safe.

MADD Georgia’s nine-week summer program uses one-hour blocks of instruction every Tuesday starting June 2nd at 10:00 am, targeted to 12-20 year-old youth. MADD’s science-backed program includes entertainment, pop quiz questions, and incentives to keep the youth not only engaged in conversations, but educated.
