How easy is it for my teen to get a fake ID on the internet? See cybersecurity program flyer for more details.
CTAD partners with local alcohol vendors to bring awareness to parents that most teens report it is easy to get alcohol. The purpose of the campaign is to bring awareness to parents in the community to not provide alcohol to minors.
