High School Program

The high school program is held in the spring semester with new content for students each year. Teens participate in a video-based presentation that shows the consequences of underage drinking and drunk driving and how it can change their future forever. Students are then given the opportunity to sign a pledge card to remain safe and sober.

What schools are saying 

In the 2016-2017 school year, 310 Missouri high schools signed up for this program. Here is what they thought of our program:

  • 99% of contacts said the program raised awareness about underage drinking at their school. 
  • 95% of contacts said that the video kept students' attention. 

Step 1: Register

Register your school online on our website. The deadline to register to receive a physical school kit is November 17, 2017. If you register after this date, all materials will still be made available to you online. You will receive a confirmation email after registering your school.

Step 2: Receive

Each high school that registers by November 17, 2017, will receive a school kit in the mail at the beginning of January. The program is available for your school's use at any point during the spring semester. This kit will contain all of the materials that you will need to successfully implement the program at your school.

At this point, you can decide what day you will plan your Safe and Sober program. Some schools opt to host their program around prom, but it is up to your school to determine the best time for your schedule. We just ask that you plan to host your program at some point before the end of the spring semester. 

Step 3: Rally

Play the 2018 high school video presentation in an assembly or in individual classrooms. Just be sure that ALL students watch the video. After the presentation, pass out pledge cards and give each student the opportunity to sign one. Collect all of the signed pledge cards.

Feel free to make the program work best for your school. We encourage you to take advantage of the discussion and activity guides located online and in your school kit. These are designed to be used as a supplement to the Safe and Sober high school video. 

Step 4: Report

Count all of the collected pledge cards. A pledge counts if it has a valid signature at least one box checked. Report your school's pledge rate on our website, or by mailing in the pledge reporting card found in the School Kit you received in January. All high school pledge reports must be turned in by May 11, 2018. 

Step 5: Reward

All participating high schools that complete the program and report pledge rates will be eligible to win cash prizes!

We participate in the Safe and Sober program because we believe that in order for our students to reach their fullest potential and achieve success, they should learn the importance of making great decisions and positive life choices. Safe and Sober provides schools with the necessary tools to inform and encourage students to become empowered and responsible citizens. — Kaylan Holloway, Social Studies teacher at Central VPA High School in St. Louis
The Clarkton C-4 School District chose to use the Safe and Sober program with our student body because it shows our students the real-life effects of choosing to drink and drive or to ride with a driver who has been drinking. The presentation of the materials is easy to implement and the content of the program really allows students to have an open and honest discussion about the dangers of drunk driving. This is our second year to use the program and it has been so effective in our district that will continue to use the program for as long as it is in existence. — Leigh Gentry, Counselor at Clarkton High School
Safe and Sober is a great program to open the doors of discussion on topics that teens shy away from. It is important that today's teens understand the risk and responsibilities of growing up. My students poured out an overwhelming amount of response to this program. — Paula Gross, Administrative Assistant at Sullivan High School
