    • Abstract:
      Underage drinking is a community problem that demands a solution. When most of us think of the word “enable,” we relate it to an individual “enabling” another to engage in harmful or potentially destructive behavior. Communities enable as well when they tolerate underage drinking, despite the fact that it is against the law. Individuals and organizations need to confront the seriousness of this problem. It is an illegal, potentially dangerous act. We must not regard underage drinking as merely a “right of passage” or a “phase.” Individuals and organizations need to confront the severity of the problem. This means debunking myths about alcohol use by youth. Why should someone who is not directly involved with your organization become concerned about underage drinking? Why should they worry if, after all, “it’s only beer?” Community leaders must be prepared to answer these questions when assembling a coalition that will enlist support from parents, educators, and other community leaders.
