Middle School Program

The middle/junior high school program is held in the fall semester. Students are shown a video that is made specifically for their age group. A high school student can then lead a discussion with the middle school students to help them understand that not everyone in high school drinks. Students are then given the opportunity to sign a pledge card to remain safe and sober.

Sign Up for the Program Now

Step 1: Register

Register your school online on our website. The deadline to register to receive a middle/junior high school kit in the mail is September 22, 2017. Program materials will be available online starting October 1, 2017. You will receive a confirmation email after registering your school.

Step 2: Receive

Each registered middle school will receive a school kit in the mail by the first week of October. The program is delivered each year in time for Red Ribbon Week (October 23 - 31). 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. While most middle/junior high schools plan their program for Red Ribbon Week, it is not required. We just ask that you plan to host your program at some point during the 2017-2018 school year. 

Step 3: Rally

Play the 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 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. 

Step 5: Reward

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