ATI is brought to you annually by Broward County Public Schools in partnership with community agencies. Every student’s life is filled with pressure, some of it good, some of it bad. The goal of ATI is to help students stand up to negative pressures and influences such as drugs and alcohol, bullying, discrimination, or any other destructive behavior or attitude. The annual ATI March helps our students celebrate their choice to live Above the Influence of negative pressures. Utilize the ATI March Toolkit’s lessons and assembly materials in preparation for the March.
The ATI Toolkit is designed to increase students’ awareness of negative influences and focuses them on the positive influences in their lives. Join us and RISE ABOVE, CHANGE YOUR LIFE, JOIN THE MOVEMENT, CHANGE THE WORLD! Visit the the ATI campaign partner’s website atipartnerships.com to learn more about living ATI.

Below is the ATI March Toolkit with the supporting activities for Broward County Public Schools choosing to participate in the annual ATI March. We recommend the 2 lessons in this toolkit be taught to students in preparation for the March. These lessons have been modified toolkits available on the ATI campaign partner’s website atipartnerships.com and from naturalhigh.org. If your school or class has time, we encourage you to expand upon the activities by accessing the complete ATI guides listed below. Use this ATI Registration Flyer for dissemination and registration.
BCPS Above the Influence March Toolkit: included in the toolkit (make sure to check out the PDF’s attachments) are both primary and secondary lessons, an assembly power point and script, supporting parent materials and much more.

The Above the Influence (ATI) March helps students stand up to negative pressures and influences such as drugs and alcohol, bullying, discrimination, or any other destructive behavior or attitude. Last year’s ATI March included over 5,000 students who marched united in celebration of their decision to live Above the Influence of negative pressures. This year’s 5th annual event will take place Saturday, December 9th at the City of Miramar Amphitheater at 9:00am. It will include a battle of the bands, student performances and much more.
We need your help! The cost of transporting, feeding, and providing marketing materials to thousands of students is unfunded. We are asking for sponsorship or vendors to help support this movement with either funds or a case of water for the event. Join us and RISE ABOVE, CHANGE YOUR LIFE, JOIN THE MOVEMENT, CHANGE THE WORLD!
