It seems innocent enough: The party to celebrate the big game, the celebration to end Rush Week or the bash to ring in the weekend. Yet, the consequences that come with simply hosting a party where alcohol is served to people who are underage can change the party atmosphere into a sobering experience.
Many young people, age 21 to 24, especially those on college campuses, do not know that hosting a party and allowing underage friends to possess or consume alcohol could be a risky proposition.
Drug Free Action Alliance has developed a program to help colleges educate their students on the responsibilities of social hosting. Based on the nationally-recognized, evidence based program, Parents Who Host, Lose the Most: Don’t be a party to teenage drinking, BUZZKILL: Serve Under 21 and the Party's Over is an eye-catching social host campaign that gives colleges the tools to let students understand the consequences when hosting parties with alcohol and underage people attend.
Don’t let hosting an underage drinking party ruin a student’s bright future!
