Adventure Program

Due to a change in priorities this course will primarily be offered as “train the trainer” course, with a priority to Beyond the Yellow Ribbon organizations.


A great deal of research has been done to study why some kids are more resilient against the pressures to use drugs, commit crimes, join gangs, etc, than others. Resilient kids are frequently described as those who have developed a strong sense of identity and personal goals, high self- esteem, effective communication skills, an appreciation of others, and creative problem solving skills. By providing opportunities for kids to build these skills in an Adventure Program, we can do more than tell them drugs are bad for them - we can actually give them the tools they need to reach their goals, so that they don’t feel the need to turn to drugs.

Drug Abuse Education Program

Due to a change in priorities this course will primarily be offered as “train the trainer” course, with a priority to Beyond the Yellow Ribbon organizations.

The Drug Abuse Education Program (DAEP) is an effective and free of charge program aimed at combating drug use, promoting healthy lifestyle choices, and building strong decision making skills.  Through informational presentations on a variety of topics, the DAEP can play in important role in your organization’s substance abuse curriculum.   Presentations are regularly updated, research based, and cover a wide variety of topics relevant to Minnesota teens. 

DAEP topics:
  • Marijuana
  • Club Drugs
  • Alcohol & drunk driving
  • Tobacco
  • Ecstasy
  • Hallucinogens
  • Date rape drugs
  • Prescription drugs
  • Opioids (heroin, morphine, opium)
  • Other synthetic drugs (cocaine, crack, methamphetamine, PCP)
  • Salvia/Khat and other new drug threats
  • Societal cost of the drug trade
  • Social and peer influence
  • Mass media and drug
DAEP presentations are conducted by qualified facilitators that encourage class discussion and foster a positive and respectful atmosphere.  DAEP facilitators are NOT recruiters and all presentation media is based solely on drug and alcohol education.

Please view the DAEP Syllabus.doc for more information.
