Mothers Against Drunk Driving Connecticut (MADD CT) along with MADD’s Massachusetts Chapter will be the first to unveil a new education program directed toward elementary students in grades 4 and 5 (ages 8-11). This program is made possible through the support of Fundación MAPFRE, a mission partner in New England since 2019.
“The ’Power of ME’ elementary program is a classroom or auditorium-based alcohol use prevention and vehicle safety presentation for elementary school students in grades 4 and 5,”. The program aims to prevent underage drinking and reduce alcohol-related injuries and death among children and youth due to underage alcohol use and riding in vehicles with impaired drivers.”

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD)
Every crash is 100% preventable
Drunk Driving is the cause number one of death in the road ways of the US. Every crash has a devastating impact not only on victims, but on their friends and family.
This program helps parents to use the power they have to keep their kids safe through ongoing, critical conversations with their children about alcohol and other drugs.
At MADD, they know that the hopes for a safer future are riding on tomorrow’s drivers. By getting today’s youth off to a good start, they are taking a giant step toward fulfilling their vision of a nation without drunk driving. At MADD, they are focused on tackling underage drinking, a problem that threatens the safety of our kids and endangers entire communities, now and down the road.
MADD is committed to serving victims of drug impaired driving and to help advocate for evidence based approaches to solving this problem.
