Prevention Dimensions is Utah's Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities curriculum, which supports the Utah State Office of Education pre-kindergarten through 12th grade health core. The program strives to give students a strong foundation of effective violence and substance abuse prevention skills. The program began in 1982 as a joint effort between the Utah State Division of Substance Abuse, Utah State Department of Health, Utah State Office of Education, and Utah State PTA.
Prevention Dimensions Day is part of the Bees organization's ongoing commitment to community outreach, health and wellness and youth development.
