Youth Participation in Substance Use Prevention Programs Outside of School

"In 2016, about 1 in 9 youths aged 12 to 17 (11.4 percent) reported that they had participated in alcohol, tobacco, or drug use prevention programs outside of school in the past year (Table A.4B in Appendix A). This estimate was similar to the percentages in 2004 to 2015, but it was lower than the percentages in 2002 and 2003. Nevertheless, in any given year since 2002, the majority of youths did not participate in prevention programs outside of school in the past year."
