A Community Case Study on Underage Drinking Prevention.
National Association of Governors' Highway Safety Representatives.
The National Association of Governors' Highway Safety Representatives (NAGHSR), with funding from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), pilot tested a comprehensive underage drinking prevention program in a number of communities across the country. In 1995, NAGHSR launched the effort in five communities, which received technical assistance on the comprehensive approach to underage drinking prevention incusing assistance on coalition building, needs based strategic planning, and implementation of an action plan. Additionally, NAGHSR developed a series of "Community How To Guides" that address fundamental components of planning and implementing a comprehensive underage drinking prevention program. To demonstrate the viability of the comprehensive approach detailed in the guides, the organization selected one of the pilot communities that demonstrated a high degree of success. That community is Omaha, Nebraska and Project Extra Mile. This case study presents a step-by-step analysis of what the organization did, how they did it, and the strategies it used to be successful.
