Here are examples of other ideas we liked.

 

Start a speaker series.
Start a monthly speaker series. Invite a group of local public health specialists, police and drug counselors to come speak on: the annual number of drug and alcohol related accidents, incarcerations and deaths. Also consider inviting speakers who have suffered the loss of, or contributed to the loss of, a friend or family member through drinking or drug use.
Organize an after school program to provide healthy alternatives to drugs & alcohol.
Create a fun after school program for middle school and/or high school students that will keep them from looking for fun in drugs and alcohol in the first place. Consider: art, music, video production, gaming, sports, politics, cooking, writing, volunteering, business, etc.
Develop educational materials/programs.
Develop educational materials (i.e. pamphlets, flyers, booklets) about the health issues associated with both recreational use of drugs and alcohol, as well as, addictions. Translate your materials into short YouTube videos and/or presentations that can be delivered to local schools, shared on Facebook or presented at community health fairs.
Start a local chapter of an anti-drug club.
Start a chapter of MADD or RADD in your school.
