Since The Century Council's inception, we have been dedicated to developing innovative strategies and providing resources to assist parents, educators, counselors, and other practitioners in their conversations with youth on how to make responsible decisions regarding beverage alcohol and the dangers of underage drinking. By offering support and resources to parents, educators, and policymakers, we address underage drinking on all fronts.
We are a leader in the use of technology applied to alcohol education. Our underage drinking programs use cutting-edge research and technology to best educate youth about the dangers of underage drinking. Programs such as our Ask, Listen, Learn program address youth at middle schools all over the country.
Our underage drinking educational resources are distributed to individuals, schools, state and local government agencies, community-based organizations, and other organizations nationwide.
The Century Council fully supports the minimum drinking age law and has worked across the nation to restrict access to alcohol for those under the age of 21. We support laws that prohibit possession, consumption, purchase and attempts to purchase alcohol among people under the minimum drinking age. We also support penalties for fake IDs and laws that punish adults who illegally provide alcohol to underage persons. We strongly support enforcement of underage drinking laws.
