Over 1,000 students, parents, law enforcement, survivors, and elected officials are inspired to live a life free from the hindrances of drug culture. In-school activities and presentations take place throughout the week. Click here to view our 2019 interview with KTVB.

This program was developed in house to provide supplemental drug education throughout the entire school year in Boise junior high schools. Posters are rotated bi-monthly that provide information on marijuana, alcohol, and vaping. A trivia question and prize donated by local companies keeps students engaged with each topic. Students also learn how to identify credible sources for health information.
The DrugFree Idaho Youth Coalition has chapters within Boise and West Ada Junior High/Middle Schools with students dedicated to promoting a drug-free culture to their peers. They have been speakers at community events and educational workshops. They facilitate the Did Ya Know campaign in their respective school. They also conduct peer-to-peer education with other students.
Each year, a high school video production class in the Treasure Valley produces their own PSA about substance misuse which airs on KTVB Channel 7. Click here to view past PSAs.
