Who We Are

What We will Provide
Universities and their students participating in these workshops will leave with information and tools to assess their relationship to alcohol. We will provide evidence based strategies for assessing the role of the alcohol industry in marketing to underage drinkers and to communities disproportionately affected by poverty. We will provide information about prevention, treatment and how best to understand addiction. Universities will have tools to assess their own capacity to enforce underage drinking laws and to provide support and guidance for students needing or seeking treatment. The Discipleship Workshops focus on our relationship to alcohol and what is the appropriate faith response.
