The Herren Project’s (THP) Project Purple initiative is to encourage people of all ages to stand up to the pressures of drugs and alcohol. The THP Project Purple initiative encourages students to be true to themselves and support one another as they navigate life’s challenges. Our goal is to empower oneself to effect change in their lives, in their school and community. You know your school’s needs and community best and will most certainly adapt the methods to do what works best within those parameters. It is very important, however, not to modify the message and core beliefs of the Herren Project and the THP Project Purple initiative. All materials, including the logo are copyrighted and may not be altered or used as intended without written permission from The Herren Project. 

You can bring the THP Project Purple initiative to your school or community group in whatever fashion you choose – start small and keep it simple. This is a message that will spread if it is nurtured. Allow the students to run the show with some guidance. Always be cognizant of the fact that what makes the THP Project Purple initiative unique and successful is that it is driven by students. When students are armed with the truth and take ownership of something they are far more likely to follow through and carry the message.
