Project Extra Mile is a network of community partnerships working in Nebraska to prevent alcohol-related harms. We have an active coalition in the Omaha metro area (Douglas/Sarpy Counties).
Our community coalition is open to anyone desiring to make his or her community safer through the prevention of underage drinking and excessive 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, including underage drinking, within the community through a comprehensive, environmental-based prevention approach. We focus on creating a safe community using the most highly-regarded scientific literature as a guide. This 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 every 2nd Wednesday of the month at 9 a.m. in Room 101 at the National Safety Council-Nebraska, 11620 M Circle, Omaha, 68137. Coalition meeting topics include guest speakers and relevant research surrounding excessive alcohol use, updates on Project Extra Mile's work, and opportunities for coalition members to get involved in advocating for safer and healthier communities.
We need your voice and your help. Please contact us (402-963-9047) to learn how you can be part of the change in your community.
