Notes from the Director

Welcome to L.E.A.D Initiative's website.  The L.E.A.D. Initiative is a youth empowered movement that utilizes a peer-to-peer approach to preventing and reducing alcohol, tobacco and illicit drugs use and abuse among Indiana youth.  We currently just completed Cohort 5 of L.E.A.D. and are preparing to train our Cohort 6 youth LEADers in early fall.

Other exciting news is that the early results from an extensive program evaluation conducted by an independent evaluator are finding that the L.E.A.D. Initiative is making an impact on the peers by building resistance framework!  Additional finding from the program evaluation will be made available in the near future.

Thank you for visiting the L.E.A.D. Initiative website and please continue to come back and find out the exciting things our youth LEADers are doing across Indiana.
