Engage With Grace: The One Slide Project
Engage With Grace: The One Slide Project

Engage With Grace: The One Slide Project was designed with one simple goal: to help get the conversation about end of life experience started. The idea is simple: Create a tool to help get people talking. One Slide, with just five questions on it.  Five questions designed to help get us talking with each other, with our loved ones, about our preferences. And we're asking people to share this One Slide — wherever and whenever they can… at a presentation, at dinner, at their book club. Just One Slide with just five questions to help get us talking.

Above the Influence
Above the Influence

Above the Influence. It’s a state of mind. It’s about being yourself and not letting negative influence get to you. Pressure to drink, do drugs or do anything that goes against who you are in order to fit in—that’s negative influence.  Above teh Influence was created for the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign, a program of the Office of National Drug Control Policy. This campaign is inspired by what teens have told us about their lives, and how they deal with the influences that shape their decisions.

NIDA for Teens
NIDA for Teens

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), created this Web site to educate adolescents ages 11 through 15 (as well as their parents and teachers) on the science behind drug abuse. NIDA enlisted the help of teens in developing the site to ensure that the content addresses appropriate questions and timely concerns.

Recognizing that teens want to be treated as equals, NIDA scientists were careful not to preach about the dangers of drug use. Rather, the site delivers science-based facts about how drugs affect the brain and body so that kids will be armed with better information to make healthy decisions.

Elements such as animated illustrations, quizzes, and games are used throughout the site to clarify concepts, test the visitor's knowledge, and make learning fun through interaction.
