The Drug Store Project?
The Drug Store Project
a fund of the El Dorado Community Foundation, is a comprehensive middle school drug prevention program designed to educate youth about the dangers of substance use and abuse.
Here in South Lake Tahoe, The Drug Store Project, held annually since 2003, continues to be the single largest collaborative prevention activity that is conducted. Each year, than 45 agencies and 200 agency personnel and community members come together to present this important information to our 6th grade youth of South Tahoe Middle School (CA) George Whittell High School (NV) and interested home-schooled youth.
This program is funded solely through Event Sponsors, Event Donors and successful grant applications. Learn more here.

We focus on what
our youth tell us
Student and Parent surveys tell us a lot.
Very important to improving the program is evaluating what our youth learn and what suggestions they have on improving our delivery. Each year, youth complete a pre-event and post-event survey. Student opinions matter and in their post-event survey, we get a comprehensive view of how they valued the program. We post our surveys to be viewed by agency partners, schools, and parents.
Take a few minutes to review our survey information below!
