Every teen’s life is filled with pressure, some of it good, some of it bad. The goal of this organization is to help teens stand up to negative pressures, or influences. The more aware kids are of the influences around them, the better prepared they will be to face them, including the pressure to use drugs and alcohol. “Above the Influence” isn’t telling kids how to live their lives, but giving them another perspective and the latest facts.
