Shatter The Myths

‘Shatter the Myths’ is a program designed to dispel myths that youth have about drugs.

By focusing on the innate talents of youth and providing a platform to make their voices heard, we help them become their own advocates for staying drug-free.

During our ‘Shatter the Myths’ youth rallies, students have the opportunity to interact with top scientists from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and hear from inspirational guest speakers, including a young person in recovery and a parent who lost a child to drug use.

Mentor Foundation USA implements Shatter the Myths in partnership with NIDA. This innovative program is well-documented and nationally recognized.


Events like ‘Shatter the Myths’ are unique and precious opportunities to empower young people. Few goals are more important than giving kids fact-based insights into their behaviors and the many things that can threaten their well-being”
