Veterans Against Drugs Program Materials

The goal of this program is to establish a mentoring relationship between a veteran and students which will last throughout the school year. The veteran will make direct contact with the school principal. Once this communication takes place and participating classrooms are identified, each veteran and teacher will meet to schedule the visits. By scheduling in advance, the classroom teachers will be able to plan their introduction of each lesson.

The manuals contain a lesson outline for each of the scheduled classroom visits. Each of these lessons corresponds to the Veterans Against Drugs Core Values and should be taught in sequence.
