Project Extra Mile is a network of community partnerships in Nebraska working to prevent alcohol-related harms. The coalition meets monthly in the Omaha metro area (Douglas/Sarpy Counties) and is open to anyone desiring to improve the health and safety of communities through the prevention of underage drinking and other excessive alcohol consumption. Involvement in our efforts includes individuals from public and private schools, law enforcement, youth, prevention and safety groups, health agencies and organizations, child advocacy groups, the faith community, prosecutors, community groups, doctors and nurses, the media, and others.

The coalition works collaboratively to prevent alcohol-related harms within the community through a comprehensive, environmental prevention approach. We focus on promoting a safe community using the most highly-regarded scientific literature as a guide. A healthy and safe environment is created, in large part, when we work to enact and enforce laws that hold adults to a higher standard for the protection of children.

Coalition meetings are typically held the second Wednesday of each month at 9 a.m. at the University of Nebraska-Omaha's Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center, 6400 University Drive South, Omaha, 68182. Coalition meetings often include guest speakers and provide information on relevant research surrounding excessive alcohol use, updates on Project Extra Mile's initiatives, and opportunities for coalition members to get involved in prevention efforts in their communities.
