Reach Out Now!

logo for SAMHSA's Reach Out Now education programTo alert children, parents, and teachers about the dangers of underage alcohol use and reinforce the message that it is unacceptable at school and at home, SAMHSA is encouraging national, state, and local leaders to conduct teach-ins for fifth- and sixth-grade classrooms nationwide during the week of April 3-7, 2006.

As a part of the Reach Out Now education program, SAMHSA and Scholastic Inc. have provided school-based materials on underage alcohol use prevention in time for Alcohol Awareness Month each April, sending the materials to fifth-grade teachers nationwide since 2002. Beginning in 2004, similar materials also were sent to sixth-grade classrooms nationwide.
