“I don’t drink because…”

“SAPCA has launched a prevention campaign featuring a series of short videos created by T.C. Williams High School students that encourage youth to be alcohol free. The videos, which feature Alexandria youth sharing reasons why they do not drink alcohol, reinforce and raise awareness of the social norm that the majority of youth in Alexandria do not drink alcohol. 

Teen alcohol use in Alexandria decreased 52% between 2011 and 2019. According to the 2019 Developmental Assets Profile, only 8% of 8th graders, 13% of 10th graders and 29% of 12th graders drank alcohol in the past 30 days.”
