We strive to educate young adults on the dangers of the underage consumption of alcohol.

The Kentucky Malt Beverage Education Corporation (MBEC) was created in 1998 to help educate teens on the dangers of underage consumption of alcohol. MBEC provides a vehicle for the Commonwealth of Kentucky to match individual private contributions with state funds to support educational efforts to address underage drinking in Kentucky. Since its inception, more than $2.3 million has been raised for this important effort which provides helpful information for parents to communicate with their children as well facts and figures about teen drinking in Kentucky.

Below, you will find information ranging from statistics on teen drinking, to advice for parents communicating with their children on the dangers of underage drinking. We hope you find these resources useful and impactful in your child’s life.



“Project Graduation” is a program developed by various high school students and administrators to provide drug and alcohol-free activities during the Graduation and Prom season.

These activities — conducted in this environment — encourages all participants to enjoy and celebrate their accomplishments without exposure to peer pressure to engage in unsafe and illegal acts of behavior. “Project Graduation” and “Project Prom” events provide students a safe, supervised, and most of all a fun, memorable nights with friends.

Once your school’s application is accepted, we will donate $500.00 to your school’s Project Prom or Project Graduation Event! ​Note: Checks will be distributed at the end of March or at the beginning of April 2022.

Deadline to apply: March 1st, 2022.


Our partners play a key role in providing adequate funding in order to donate to so many schools. Additionally, each year, we receive a matching donation from the Cabinet of Health and Family Services. Without their help, none of this would be possible.
