Project Extra Mile is a network of community partnerships working in Nebraska to prevent and reduce alcohol-related harms. We have an active coalition in the Omaha metro area (Douglas/Sarpy counties).
Community organizing is the foundation of our efforts in preventing underage drinking, excessive alcohol consumption, and the related harms. Our work is focused on policy initiatives, enforcement collaborations, media advocacy, education and awareness, and youth leadership. This comprehensive approach is often referred to as environmental prevention.
Project Extra Mile has been recognized through awards from the National Commission Against Drunk Driving, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, the Public Health Association of Nebraska, Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America and The National Safety Council, Greater Omaha Chapter.
