The mission of Hit a Home Run Against Drugs is to promote healthy lifestyle choices among today's youth by empowering them with the knowledge and self-esteem to prevent alcohol, tobacco and drugs. Emphasis on self-esteem, eating healthy, exercising and setting goals promote positive social and emotional learning.
The campaign’s goal is to reduce Adverse Childhood Experiences and support resilience and healing while fostering relationships between children, their parents, and other role models such as educators and community leaders .
It’s never too early to start teaching prevention. The message we deliver is based on research that the most effective drug prevention strategies promote overall health, goals, self-esteem, and the ability to make good decisions.
The mascot “Homer” allows for the program to establish an easily recognizable identity that will remind children on sight of the message: “Be A Slugger…Hit A Home Run Against Drugs!”
