Middle and High School Presentations
The cornerstone of the NOPE mission is the high-impact, multimedia presentation that is delivered to middle and high school students. The NOPE presentation is purposefully blunt and evokes powerful emotions. The response from students, parents and teachers has been very positive. Many students reach out to NOPE's wealth of resources beyond the presentation and seek guidance for themselves or to get help for a friend.
The content of the NOPE presentation scripts are designed to provide the most impact in an efficient and effective way within the 1 hour time period allowed. The scripts are tailored to meet the needs of each community chapter and have been approved by licensed psychologists, certified prevention professionals, law enforcement officials, The Safe and Drug Free School Board Advisory Council, and family members who have lost children to drug and alcohol related incidents.
Lynn University of Boca Raton, Florida is providing ongoing quantitative and qualitative research for NOPE programs to determine whether or not NOPE presentations actually change students’ core attitudes, opinions, perceptions and behaviors relative to alcohol and other drug issues. We believe that measurable changes in these important variables may actually translate to less overdose deaths. For more information on research click here.
