Holding kids accountable to the law without teaching them the law is not working. Kids can’t play the game if they don’t know the rules. PBR is the only program of its kind to provide state specific law-related education.
The purpose of the Play by the Rules National Project is to provide other jurisdictions with a “proven” program that can be implemented and replicated. It is an ambitious attempt to provide youth with the tools they need to build safer communities.
The ultimate goal of this project is to have all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories participating in the PBR program. Currently, the PBR program in Alabama is in its 19th year. In 2009, the program was adapted and implemented in Connecticut, Guam, Nevada, and Texas.
