Underage drinking seminars go digital

Thursday, February 24 2011

Government and private sectors alike use different marketing tools to educate people about the dangers of drinking. From billboard campaigns about underage drinking to TV commercials on driving under the influence, these groups provide ample information through traditional media. Now they're going digital.

The Underage Drinking Enforcement Training Center, under the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, is hosting electronic seminars, helping communities in their efforts to educate the public about alcohol, as well as the risks of underage drinking.

The seminars, according to JoinTogether.org, are offered online through web conference technology. The online meetings are aimed at raising awareness about underage drinking as well as finding out from participants about what their community is currently doing to educate their youth about the dangers of drinking.

With the use of web conference technology, people across the country will be able to participate and can ask questions or raise valuable points during the webinar. All they have to do is register for free and be available at the specific date that it will be held.
