Project Here: Substance Use Prevention Education

Project Here is making substance use prevention resources available to every public middle school in Massachusetts. Learn more about Project Here and how to register your school to participate.

In May 2017, Attorney General Maura Healey and the GE Foundation announced Project Here, an innovative $2 million collaboration, along with Health Resources in Action, Epicenter Experience, and the Herren Project. This first-of-its-kind initiative is making substance use prevention education available to every public middle school in Massachusetts to promote social-emotional learning and empower students to make healthy decisions.

All public middle schools in Massachusetts can register for access to: an Online Toolkit containing dozens of research-based resources for classroom instruction; Project Here Games, an interactive online experience for students; and a Student Support Network through The Herren Project for students who need help, and all components are provided at no cost.

Project Here also provided public middle schools in Massachusetts the opportunity to apply for a comprehensive, multi-week, evidence-based curriculum, which has been made available to selected schools through a grant application process.
