The Aquinas Stop and Think Group encourages students to make positive choices in regards to underage alcohol use, illegal drugs, driving, and relationships. Stop and Think Group organize special events, including:
- Red Ribbon Week
- Fun Nights without drugs or alcohol
- Sponsored Events: ex. Nebraska State Trooper’s Safe Driving Demonstration
The Stop and Think Group started a few years ago by Brittany Hilfiker. She attended a Project Extra Mile event. Project Extra Mile is a “network of community partnerships working in Nebraska to prevent and reduce alcohol-related harms.” Project Extra Mile encourages youth leadership to change their communities by challenging the societal norms surrounding underage drinking and excessive drinking.
