Partner with Talk it Out NC!

Talk it Out NC is an initiative provided by the ABC Commission to help combat the issue of underage drinking in the state of North Carolina. At TIO, we understand the importance of collaboration and teamwork. To further our reach and services, we’ve developed a variety of ways that ABC Boards, Coalitions, alliances, and other organizations can partner with Talk it Out NC for resources.

Talk it Out NC encourages parents and the parenting community (educators, counselors, mentors, community leaders) to talk to our children openly about the risks and consequences of underage drinking. Talking to our children and young adults about the consequences of underage drinking will give them the tools they need to make positive decisions about not drinking alcohol underage.
