Parents know the transition from middle school to high school can be tough, but the Addiction Resource Council (ARC) in Waukesha County is working to make sure 7th through 9th graders have the skills they need to make good decisions. The We Energies Foundation is proud to support their mission through the Resist the Influence program.
As part of the program, trained professionals teach kids how to recognize negative outside influences and the impact those influences can have on their lives. The goal is to prevent the students from trying e-cigarettes, alcohol and drugs. The program teaches students to make decisions that reflect who they are, not who someone is pressuring them to be.

Since the early 1980s, We Energies has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in communities across the state.
