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 is in its 20th year and continues to be the single largest collaborative prevention activity that is conducted. Annually, more than 45 agencies and 225 agency personnel and community members come together at the Lake Tahoe Community College campus to present this important information to our 6th grade youth of South Tahoe Middle School (CA) and George Whittell High School (NV). This program is funded by donations and successful grant applications.

We focus on what
our youth tell us
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.
