Action Steps: Guiding Questions
  • Between what grades do we see the biggest increase in underage drinking? What other major life events occur at this time that may help facilitate this transition?
  • Do alcohol preferences differ between boys and girls? How does this impact prevention planning efforts?
  • Using race and ethnicity as a proxy, what cultural differences encourage or discourage underage drinking in the community? How must planning efforts be altered to encompass cultural norms? Is the language spoken at home a barrier to planning efforts?
  • Should various locations receive more or less focus due to the differential consumption patterns? How can geographic disparities be eliminated through partnership and collaboration with school districts?
