Engaging Youth in Prevention Advocacy

Straight Up Reality Improv

Straight Up is a Ventura County, California youth development project for ages 12-25 that promotes social change regarding underage and binge drinking, impaired driving, marijuana, prescription drug misuse and other concerns using improvisation and interactive techniques to engage discussion, explore issues, and develop personal and community solutions to these issues.

Straight Up also developed Reality Parties for Parents.

Straight Up is made possible through funding from Ventura County Behavioral Health Department, Alcohol and Drug Programs.
