Project Northland

About This Resource

Project Northland is a multilevel, universal intervention designed to prevent substance use among adolescents in middle school. The 6th grade home component targets parent-child communication via homework assignments, group discussions, and the establishment of a community-wide task force. The 7th grade school-based curriculum, which focuses on improving resistance skills and social norms regarding teen alcohol use, includes class discussions, games, and role playing. The 8th grade components include the peer-led Powerlines curriculum, a mock town meeting, and a community action project. Review is limited to the 6th-8th grade implementation model and does not include the Class Action high school component. (Source)
