At Emily’s Hope, our mission is to provide evidence-based substance use prevention education for children, teaching them about their brains and how to protect them from harmful substances. Our dedicated committee consists of experienced professionals from various fields, including education, medicine, and addiction counseling.
Our engaging and relevant curriculum includes lesson plans, activities, a song, an animated series, and accompanying children’s books for each grade level. The committee members played a vital role in creating and refining the curriculum.
