Don't Be

Don't Be That Guy, Don't Be That Girl

Remember First Year?Don't Be That Girl

Everyone has stories about “that” guy or “that” girl that did something totally ridiculous under the influence and somehow paid the price. These stories are far too common, so the “Don’t Be That Guy, Don’t Be That Girl” program was developed.

“Don’t Be That Guy, Don’t Be That Girl” is a comprehensive alcohol and other drug prevention collaborative project between the University of Windsor, Windsor FOCUS Community and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, with startup funding provided by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
