Lead the Way

TESTED PROVEN EFFECTIVE: THE ONLY K-12 PROVEN-EVIDENCE BASED
CURRICULA TAUGHT IN THE UNITED STATES BY POLICE OFFICERS.

The LEAD the Way Initiative was formed in order to raise awareness and much needed funds to address the drug and opioid crisis we face today. Our children have the right to a life free of substance abuse, despair, and violence. In New Jersey, a Rutgers University study reports that drug overdose deaths are on track to triple the number from 2013, reaching 3,250 by the end of 2021. Tens of thousands of others have overdosed or are addicted and are experiencing permanent disabilities and shattered lives. Drug abuse prevention has never been more needed.

Our Children deserve a proven effective education/ prevention curriculum that provides them with the critical information and skills they need to live healthy lives free of substance abuse and violence.

Our L.E.A.D. instructors provide the only tested and proven effective, evidence based, K-12 anti-drug/anti-violence curriculum delivered by law enforcement.  L.E.A.D. directly addresses opioids in its curriculum and we are currently in 340 communities here in New Jersey.  Our L.E.A.D. officers are the last line of defense in our schools.

If you are on this page, you may have already met one of our L.E.A.D. Program Awareness representatives in your community They are there to raise awareness and help us raise funds to address a drug and opioid epidemic that requires our collective immediate response.

Your support is appreciated and will assist L.E.A.D. and local communities like yours, in three ways

  • Your donation will assist and subsidize L.E.A.D. agencies with obtaining student workbooks.
  • Your donation will subsidize training cost for new L.E.A.D. trainings, update trainings, and training conferences.
  • Your donation will provide donated toys and other items directly to L.E.A.D. agencies and communities right here in New Jersey.

If you do not have L.E.A.D. in your community please call our office at (609) 259-2500.  We would be eager to contact your local police department to provide them further information.
