"Currently we have 300 members who've pledged to stay drug and alcohol free," Andy Steger, club advisor.
With signing that pledge they've chosen to willingly participate in random drug and alcohol tests.
"They get put into a separate pool and randomly through out the month they'll get one name pulled out and they get drug tested," Jess Splittgerber, Co-President of DREAM team.
The DREAM team understands that some students need a little more motivation to stay drug and alcohol free. They created a real life scenario that they perform every two years, it's a nationally recognized programmed called; every 15 minutes.
"Every 15 minutes someone is killed by drunk driving," Claire Emmerich, Co-president of DREAM team.
Through out the school day , the dream team takes 1 student out of class every 15 minutes to symbolize a loss.
"It's an emotional time for people, time through out the school. People see their friends dieing, it's kind of an eye opening experience," Claire Emmerich, Co-president of DREAM team.
DREAM team, is made by students for students.
"The biggest thing is to make sure the kids have positive things to be doing so that they make good choices," Andy Steger, club advisor.
