2 drug use (cannabis, inhalants, ecstasy). Tobacco and alcohol are considered acceptable, since they are used by parents, older brothers and sisters, and, friends. The activities of the Association under the Global Initiative The project will involve young people and adults in the implementation of prevention programs in 4 schools. In each school, a group will be formed, consisting of 1 teacher, 1 student of the pedagogical university, 1 parent and 2 students (15-16 year old). Each group will participate in a two-day training on methods of prevention work among young people and will plan a series of activities to be conducted in the schools.

The average age of initiation is for drugs, and 10 for alcohol and tobacco. The project will be implemented in one school of an underprivileged district of Brest and will cover all classes, from 6 to 15 years old. The oldest students (13-15 year old) will be trained in social and communication skills and will conduct peer-to-peer programs among years children.
