Tested Proven Effective
The only k-12 proven-evidence based curricula taught in the united states by police officers.
The LEAD the Way Initiative was formed in order to raise awareness and much needed funds to address the drug and opioid crisis we face today. Our children have the right to a life free of substance abuse, despair, and violence. In the Tri-State area we have lost over 10,000 of our friends, family members, and neighbors to drug overdoses in 2016. In New Jersey, the CDC reports, drug overdose deaths are up 42.3%.
Our Children deserve a proven effective education/ prevention curriculum that provides them with the critical information and skills they need to live healthy lives free of substance abuse and violence.
Our L.E.A.D. instructors provide the only tested and proven effective, evidence based, K-12 anti-drug/anti-violence curriculum delivered by law enforcement. L.E.A.D. directly addresses opioids in its curriculum and we are currently in 340 communities here in New Jersey. Our L.E.A.D. officers are the last line of defense in our schools.
If you are on this page, you may have already met one of our L.E.A.D. Program Awareness representatives in your community They are there to raise awareness and help us raise funds to address a drug and opioid epidemic that requires our collective immediate response.
Your support is appreciated and will assist L.E.A.D. and local communities like yours, in three ways
