Clubs and organizations are a great way to help develop character and the skills that will benefit you in school, your career, and in life. Skills like commitment, leadership, effective communication, and being able to work successfully in a group all come from participating in a club or organization. Joining a club is a great way to make friends, develop leadership skills, and boost your college resumé.

Sponsor: Ms. Lisa Mills, Project Brain Leader
Project Brain is a social norms campaign facilitated in numerous Broward County public schools, grades 6-12. The Project Brain health campaign empowers youth to prevent or reduce alcohol consumption. Through the use of the research-based social norms approach, a change in perception toward alcohol is created resulting in a change in behavior.
How is this accomplished? Social Norms marketing is based on the theory that people’s behavior is influenced by their perceptions of how they think others are behaving “normally” or “typically.” Research has shown that people’s behavior follows what we think the majority of others are doing. Using social norms marketing to inform people that the majority of their peers do NOT smoke, drink alcohol, drink, and drive helps to reduce the likelihood that they will. Research shows over 80% of Broward County students choose not to Drink. Marketing this information reduces the likelihood that students will begin to drink alcohol and can reduce use if they have already begun using this drug. What are you feeding YOUR brain? Find out what other Broward County students are in these videos.
