Soundcheck Prevention Network is a non-profit, school-based prevention organization. We develop sustainable, evidence-informed strategies for your community that increase student wellbeing and prevent unhealthy attitudes and decisions about alcohol, nicotine and other drugs.

​Our Approach

Student-First

We listen to the students to invite their influence and give them ownership in the prevention conversation​

Insight-Driven

We use survey and other insight gathering methods to evaluate a school's climate, identify community strengths and student needs, and to formulate customized curriculum and strategies

Strengths-Focused

We build on the existing strengths of the community and apply strength-based principles to increase student and community health

Powered by Stories

We use story as a medium for change: young people are writing their stories and value those of their caretakers, teachers, mentors and peers. Our Prevention Specialists share their stories of addiction and recovery to bring prevention content to life in the classroom

Intentional and Sustaining

Prevention is an intentional, sustained practice that brings meaningful change to individual, community and cultural attitudes that shape our behaviors. We aspire to stay engaged over time

Outcomes-Oriented

We use analytics tools to set goals, measures, baselines and targets based on regional, national and global benchmarks

“As a high school principal, I don't face a more complicated, or more charged issue, than substance use. Will has helped our community progress in facing, understanding and reducing it. He single-handedly rejuvenated our prevention program
