Best Practices
Four high school students

When it comes to underage drinking, there are numerous ways to deal with the problem. Through the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board’s (PLCB's) decades of experience, we believe we have been able to gather the most proven methods from around the country relating to this issue and have made it our mission to bring them to you. These methods include important best practices falling under three very important categories: effective enforcement, reducing accessibility, and community norms. These best practices include everything from ensuring that there are effective enforcement procedures in place for the authorities and working to reduce accessibility of alcohol to underage individuals, to coordinating with the local communities to set standards for action and norms for acceptable behavior. Addressing the issue of underage drinking from these three angles has proven successful not only in Pennsylvania, but across the nation.
