Lead and Seed

Lead & Seed is an intervention for middle and high school youth designed to increase their knowledge and problem-solving skills for preventing and reducing alcohol, tobacco, and other drug (ATOD) use; guide them in developing strategic prevention plans for use in their schools and communities; and help them implement these plans. The intervention also aims to affect ATOD risk factors for these youth (e.g., increase perception of risk of harm from use) and decrease their use of these substances.

Peer Leadership (Developed by Prevention Links)

The challenges and obstacles that our youth currently face as they navigate substance misuse in their communities are becoming ever more complex. Changing physical environments, increasing social acceptability regarding substance use, and heightened access to substances have fostered a need for powerful, effective leaders in our community. With the implementation of this peer leadership curriculum, we aim to empower youth to be leaders in their communities and to equip youth with the skills necessary to effect positive change in their environments. The overarching objectives of this peer leadership curriculum are as follows:

  • To equip students with the knowledge and tools necessary to develop and practice leadership skills in order to effect change in their environments;
  • To provide students with opportunities for the application of public health strategies and skills through program development; and,
  • To provide students with opportunities to explore their leadership styles and harness personal strengths in order to achieve results
