What We Do

Project Extra Mile is a network of community partnerships working in Nebraska to prevent excessive alcohol use, including underage drinking. We create healthier and safer communities by focusing on our mission to advocate for evidence-based policies and practices to prevent and reduce alcohol-related harms. The organization undertakes a comprehensive approach to prevention through enforcement collaborations, public policy initiatives, education and outreach, and media advocacy.
