Prom season is sort of a good news/bad news deal. On the good news tip, weeks of planning, shopping, and anticipation, all finally culminate in a night of pageantry, romance, and memorable fun.


The bad news is that it also means that some of your classmates will spend the next few weeks trying to pressure you into drinking or taking drugs at prom, and trying to convince you you’re being lame, boring or uncool when you say no.


Over the next few weeks, d-RAP will be giving you tips and tools to help you resist the peer pressure you may face, and to make sure your prom night is fun, meaningful and memorable for all the right reasons (and not for the wrong reasons, like that awful/awesome 80s hair in the photo at the top of this post). 

Prom night prep starts weeks before the dance.

Start your prom preparation at our new d-RAP Prom Night page, a resource to help you stand firm in the face of bad influences, with specific strategies and tips for resisting peer pressure. We’ve posted a separate page for your folks to help them help you make great decisions.


And remember to check back here at our blog, our Facebook pagefollow us on Twitter, or check out our google+ page (if that’s how you roll) for continually updated tips on staying sober and making this prom season awesome.
