Educator/Teacher Resources

2022 Prom Toolkit

We are aware that many traditional approaches to addressing youth substance use (e.g., zerotolerance policies, abstinence-only education, etc.) have limited effectiveness and can produce unintended negative consequences. As a result, this toolkit takes a harm reduction approach and aims to reduce the social and health harms related to alcohol and substance use. The goal is to support and encourage healthy behaviours and good decision-making. This resource includes information on the risks of using alcohol and substances and encourages youth to celebrate in a safer, less harmful way on their prom night.

The purpose of this toolkit is to provide school administrators, teachers, students, and parents/caregivers with resources and messaging that encourages students to have fun on their prom night while making decisions to celebrate in safer ways.

The toolkit contains the following components:Make prom a night to remember!

  • Student Party PROMise Pledge and Photo Op Card
  • Celebrate Safer On Prom Night-Information Sheet
  • A Lesson on Consent
  • Protect Yourself from Sexual Violence: Tip Sheet
  • White Ribbon Resource Card
  • How to Talk to Your Teenager About Prom- A Resource for Parents
