Project Here is working to support substance use prevention education in schools, assist young people in getting help, and reduce the stigma related to addiction. Every middle school student attending a Massachusetts public school will have an opportunity to participate in Project Here. Each public school will receive an educational toolkit, designed to help the school deliver substance use education, in both hard copy and web-based formats. The toolkit will include prevention lesson plans, educational resources, video content, and outreach materials. It will also help connect students to a support network staffed by licensed professionals at The Herren Project and give interested schools information about participating in the THP Project Purple Initiative.
Every public school that registers receives a Project Here Toolkit, which will be available in late Fall 2017.
