For Educators

No matter your position in your school – teacher, principal, or support – your role in preparing young people to make good decisions is invaluable. Making decisions that are right for them is based on knowing the outcome- both positive and negative. Help your students understand the risks associated with gambling, alcohol, and other drugs using some of the activities in this section. You will find activities and information sheets suggested for each grade, to be used alongside your regular educational materials.

Knowledge is the best tool youth can possess when they are confronted with the decision to become involved with substances or gambling. Many activities in this section allow educators to impart this knowledge in a fun and interactive manner that allows for great conversations in the classroom and beyond.
