The goal of the Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) Program is to support and enhance State efforts, in cooperation with local jurisdictions, to enforce laws prohibiting the sale of alcoholic beverages, or the consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors.

1) an Investigator position within the Alcohol Beverage Control Board to perform compliance checks and shoulder taps;

2) ongoing certification of DJJ staff as substance abuse counselors to work with youth in the juvenile justice system who may have substance abuse issues;

3) systems improvements to strengthen and develop more culturally focused substance abuse treatment and education for youth in secure care and in their communities;

4) training and supervision for youth to get the message out against underage drinking; and

5) intervention services, coordinated law enforcement activities, and environmental prevention strategies involving local youth that are specifically targeted to rural Alaskan communities.
