Youth Services - School Assembly Program - Smashed
MADD Canada's school assembly programs bring high-energy drug and alcohol impaired driving awareness and risk reduction messaging to the world of education.
Youth and school programming have been a key component of MADD Canada's youth services, education and awareness initiatives since 1994. The programs are designed to communicate directly with young people on their level and in their language and encourage them to take a closer look at their values and perceptions.

Smashed is the story of teens Kelly, Natalie and Pete. Three young friends heading to a typical school dance. Natalie has a huge crush on the very popular yet incorrigible Johnny, who tells her he'll meet her there. But as it turns out, Johnny has been drinking and is turned away from the school dance. He invites Natalie and her two friends to a private house party instead and while Kelly and Pete don't want to go, they do so because Natalie is so insistent. The party is in full swing when they arrive. Many of the teens are drinking and smoking pot including Johnny. He entices Natalie to drink; she has way too much and is no longer in control. When Johnny leaves the party to get some more pot, drunken Natalie makes the terrible decision to go with him. Her friends do everything they can to stop her from getting into his car, but fail. Kelly calls 911 and she and Pete follow in her car. What happens next is a deadly twist of fate that nobody could predict.
Melanie Wight, a Member of the Legislative Assembly in Burrows, Manitoba attended a recent screening of Smashed in Winnipeg. She was so moved and motivated by the presentation that she made a statement on the show in front of all her colleagues at the Legislative Assembly.
