Reducing underage and dangerous drinking is a community effort. The PLCB partners with community groups, state and local agencies, schools, law enforcement organizations and concerned parents and citizens. The Bureau of Alcohol Education develops, promotes and uses various tools that have been proven effective in achieving goals.
- Designed for college and university students, Alcohol Awareness for Student Leaders Training (formerly the Resident Assistant Training Program) arms student leaders with information on how to guide their peers to make informed, smarter decisions about alcohol and reduce underage and dangerous drinking.
- The annual Alcohol Awareness Poster Contest encourages students in kindergarten through 12th grade convey to their peers positive, no-use messages depicting healthy alternatives to drinking, or reasons why young people should choose not to drink alcohol.
- Through its grants program, the PLCB funds programs focused on reducing underage and high-risk alcohol consumption and supports related law-enforcement activities. The maximum award for each two-year grant is $40,000 ($20,000 each year).
