About

CHANGE PERCEPTIONS.
PROMOTE THE POSITIVE.

Be [You] is a statewide media campaign that seeks to prevent and reduce underage drinking among youth by challenging the misconception that most teens drink alcohol. People often overestimate the prevalence of risky behaviors among their peers. Research shows that misconceptions like these can actually increase unhealthy behaviors. Our goal is to portray what Alaska teens really are doing, or not doing, to reduce the perception of underage drinking, thus reducing the amount of teens who actually drink.

This figure is provided by the Alaska Youth Risk Behavior Survey that asks high school students from across the state to self-report on their health behaviors. For more information, check out the 2013 YRBS Results.

Visit us on Facebook, Instagram or YouTube to Be [You] and interact with other Alaska teens. You can also contact Alaska Wellness Coalition to find out what’s happening in your area by emailing info@BeYouAlaska.com.
