What is it?
The Reality Maze is a student-focused experience designed to bring life to the potential effects on life that stem from underage drinking, and other high risk behaviors such as: drug use, huffing, marijuana, alcohol abuse, drunk driving, car accidents, sexting, bullying, risky sexual behaviors, pregnancy and prescription drug abuse.
Students navigate their way through the maze by a series of scenario cards that take them from table to table; these choices end in different ways for students to show the real-life consequences of their behaviors.

Who puts on the Reality Maze?
BASE partners with Evansville High School and numerous community partners every year to educate the freshman class. Since 2010, every freshman student at Evansville High School has gone through the Reality Maze!
The Maze paths are staffed by community partners who play a certain role in the consequences. The Evansville Police Department, Evansville EMS, nursing students from Edgewood College, the Sexual Assault Recovery Program, Rock County Juvenile Diversion and members from the Evansville Community School District all discuss the impact that these life choices have on the students’ real lives.
