update as needed. This is a great tool to keep your teen safe on the road.

Project Extra Mile
A statewide network of community partnerships in Nebraska working to prevent underage drinking and youth access to alcohol. Our mission is to create a community consensus that underage alcohol use is illegal, unhealthy, and unacceptable. We believe that the issue of underage drinking should not fall solely on the shoulders of young people, but squarely at the feet of the adults in the community. We have the ability, as leaders, teachers, policy-makers, concerned citizens and parents, to change the environment and challenge social norms surrounding underage drinking.
