SoberTruth4Youth.com Online Prevention Education Portal Launched

Nonprofit organization EmPoWER Somerset in partnership with Safe Communities Coalition of Somerset / Hunterdon Counties, are proud to announce the launch of SoberTruth4Youth.org.

This online prevention education portal addresses topics including preventing underage drinking, drug use, and teen dating violence through eight short, engaging videos developed by the Safe Communities Coalition and other community partners such as Safe+Sound Somerset and Community in Crisis. The videos feature professional and personal testimonials, facts and dramatizations to increase knowledge and enhance skills for staying safe and making good choices. Viewers can test their knowledge by taking a short quiz associated with each video and can then download or print a certificate of completion once all of the quiz questions are answered correctly. The online prevention education portal was developed with funding from the New Jersey Department of Health and the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

Empower Somerset works to empower individuals and families to make positive lifestyle choices by promoting healthy communities through education, collaboration, and connections to resources.
