Here is a list of NCCPUD programming and activities.  


The PEER program aims to reduce underage drinking by influencing the decision-making and behavior of the youth by creating an enabling environment for the youth  to share healthy attitudes and social norms.  


Youth Advocates learn about the effects of underage drinking, analyze alcohol messaging within the community, enact community-based activities to educate their peers,  organize public campaigns against underage drinking and advocate for policy changes.  

The Advocates meet Tuesday afternoons and partcipiate in a number of of retreats and conferences across the United States, testify before DC City Council members, give presentations, attend board meetinfs conduct peer-to-peer and merchant trainings, and publish an uncensored youth newsletter four times a year.  A travel stipend is given to cover the costs of transportation to all events and community service hours are given toward high school graduation.

SADD is a peer-to-peer education, prevention, and activism organization dedicated to preventing destructive decisions, particularly underage drinking, other drug use, risky and impaired driving, teen violence, and teen suicide.  


The EXEC team has the responsibility to provide the day-to-day direction of the PEER program.  The objective is for the EXEC team members to establish a peer support network and serve as mentors to their peers and to the Youth Advocates.
