  • Increase the percent of Illinois middle school and high school youth who report no chance or little chance of being seen as cool if they began drinking alcohol regularly, that is, at least once or twice a month.
  • Increase the percent of Illinois middle school and high school youth who report moderate or great risk of harm (physically or in other ways) if people take one or two drinks of an alcoholic beverage nearly every day.
