Resource Links for Teens

Above the Influence is an online interactive site that offers information, fact sheets, games, and posters for teens. This Web site and the Above the Influence ads you see on TV and in magazines are created for the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign.This campaign reflects what teens across the country have said is going on in their lives. The goal is to “help teens to stay above the influence. The more aware you are of the influences around you, the better prepared you will be to stand up to the pressures that keep you down. We're not telling you how to live your life, but are giving you another perspective and the latest facts”.

Checkyourself.org is an interactive online service of the Partnership for a Drug Free America (http://www.drugfree.org/) that offers resources, information, quizzes, and videos for teens to question themselves about their drug use.

SADD.org is the nation’s leading youth empowerment and prevention organization, with 10,000 chapters in middle schools, high schools and colleges across the country. They are dedicated to preventing destructive decisions, particularly underage drinking, other drug use, impaired driving, and teen violence.

Thecoolspot.org is an online service of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. It is a place for teens about “being yourself, thinking for yourself, and getting the facts about underage drinking.”

Smoke Free Teen is designed and run by people at the National Cancer Institute. They want you to take control of your health. And that's why they developed this site. They're NOT going to tell you what to do. This site is designed to help you understand the decisions you make—especially the decision to quit smoking—and how those decisions fit into your life.

DoSomething.org is the country’s largest not-for-profit for young people and social change. We have 2.5 million members (and counting!) who kick butt on causes they care about. Bullying. Animal cruelty. Homelessness. Cancer. The list goes on. DoSomething.org spearheads national campaigns so 13- to 25-year-olds can make an impact - without ever needing money, an adult, or a car. Over 2.4 million people took action through DoSomething.org in 2012.
