Protecting You/Protecting Me (PY/PM) is a 5-year classroom-based alcohol use prevention and vehicle safety program for elementary school students in grades 1-5 (ages 6-11) and high school students in grades 11 and 12. PY/PM consists of a series of 40 science- and health-based lessons, with 8 lessons per year for grades 1-5. Lessons focus on brain development, vehicle safety, and life skills. Parent take-home activities are offered for all 40 lessons. High school students can train to deliver the curriculum to elementary school students, and learn specific content about how alcohol use impacts adolescents. The overall goals are to reduce alcohol-related injuries and death among children and youth due to underage alcohol use and riding in vehicles with drivers who are not alcohol free.
