The RAT® Program empowers youth to make healthy lifestyle decisions by educating them on the dangers of tobacco and other harmful substances.
In addition to prevention education, the program provides opportunities for youth to develop teamwork, communication, and other critical life skills.
We are committed to making Mississippi a healthier place to live. As part of that commitment, we offer age-appropriate program materials for youth, free of charge. The lessons in these programs encourage youth to make healthy choices that boost self-estreem and allow them to be positive role models for their peers and future generations.
