About Start the Talk

Start the Talk is like a video game that helps you learn the do's and don'ts of talking to kids about underage drinking. Using avatars, you will:

  • Practice bringing up the topic of alcohol
  • Learn the questions to ask
  • Get ideas for keeping the conversation going

You decide what to say, see it play out, and adjust your approach with help from your coaches.
