We’re proud of the ambassadors who have the charisma, passion, and dedication to lend their voice to keeping teens safe and being great role models.
Over the last 25 years, we’ve worked with a number of celebrities. We don’t mean to name drop, but here are a few:
In 2017, we teamed up with the most decorated American gymnast Simone Biles to encourage parents and teachers to start conversations about the dangers of underage drinking through our Ask, Listen, Learn program. Simone joined over 20 Attorneys General from across the country in saying “YES” to a healthy lifestyle and “NO” to underage drinking. This goal-driven super athlete is a great role model for kids everywhere! Check out some of our projects with Simone here.
We’re proud to work with NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal since 2010, first to combat the national issue of college-age binge drinking through our student-led campaigns on college campuses. This year, Shaq joined our campaign “Drive Like You Give a #&%!” to fight impaired driving by encouraging young adults to make safe decisions when behind the wheel. Shaq has also helped us fight underage drinking through the “Shaq Teaches Bella About Driving” video series and the #InnerShaq campaign.
Breakout entertainer Bella Thorne is joining forces with us by serving as the lead ambassador for iDECIDE, a campaign encouraging teens to focus on the importance of formulating and following individual decisions, which includes saying no to underage drinking. The campaign was designed to evoke a stay-true-to-yourself message and empower teens to act based on their personal beliefs. See Bella’s work with us here.
