Engaging young people in advocacy, education & prevention
Creating social change around alcohol, drugs, and more

Interactive Workshops

We “just say no” to lectures and passive learning. Our improv games and humor create a fun environment for active learning and involved discussions about the real issues teens face concerning alcohol and drugs. These powerful workshops can be tailored for your specific group – students, parents, teachers, PTAs, or any community organization.

In addition to offering opportunities for teens and young adults to take action, we provide parents, community members, schools, and youth leaders with information, skills and resources to address these issues in their own communities.

BRITE workshops are made available to schools and youth serving organizations within Ventura County at no cost through funding from the Ventura County Behavioral Health Department, Alcohol and Drug Programs.

For workshops outside of Ventura County, please contact BRITE for pricing.


Prevention Games

These fun games use interactive software and individual response keypads to keep the students engaged while learning important information. Competing in teams, the game is customizable for age groups and subject matter. Topics can include alcohol, marijuana and other drugs, Rx drugs, impaired driving, vaping and tobacco.

Social Change Theatre Workshop

In these fully interactive workshops, the students will use Social Change Theatre techniques to critically examine social norms, attitudes and behaviors regarding issues they care about and explore ideas for change that lead to the development of advocacy projects.
