Funding science-based education for teens
Established in 2016 by Southern Glazer’s, the Youth Alcohol Awareness and Education Foundation, Inc. funds programs that support underage drinking prevention.
With support from the Foundation, the AlcoholEdu for High School program developed by leading technology company EverFi is available at no cost for public and private high schools in South Florida, Dallas, Texas, and Metro New York.
AlcoholEdu for High School is a 90-minute, interactive course that engages students with science-based alcohol education and interactive exercises, providing an individualized experience that changes perceptions, motivates behavior change, and supports healthier decisions regarding alcohol.
Impacts of alcohol awareness
For the most recent 2021-2022 school year, the program saw significant increases in reach and impact. After having completed the Southern Glazer’s-sponsored course, students’ knowledge gain scores increased by 31%, from 67% to 89%, compared to the 28% average increase of national student scores.
Since the kickoff of Southern Glazer’s program in 2017, the initiative has impacted: 24,151 students, more than 186 high schools, and 22.2k hours of learning.
