Being Outstanding Leaders Together (BOLT)


Being Outstanding Leaders Together (BOLT) against Drugs and Alcohol is a series of one-day events that provide drug- and alcohol-prevention knowledge to middle school students and parents. BOLT provides the opportunity for community coalitions to host regional events through a partnership with Virginia ABC's Education and Prevention Section.

If you are a community partner interested in learning more about BOLT or becoming one of our participating partners, please contact the Education and Prevention Section today.


Through the BOLT learning objectives, participants will:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of the effects of drugs and alcohol on the body and brain, impact on academics and legal consequences.
  • Understand the importance of peer leadership and will be able to recognize the abilities of a peer leader.
  • Understand the role that alcohol and drugs play in youth relationships, suicide and interpersonal violence. Participants will understand the key concepts of social providing and peer pressure.
