As a student-run nonprofit social enterprise, we value creating a safe space where college students can work collectively to end extreme poverty by 2030 in a way that will reflect favorably on FeelGood. Doing this most effectively requires us to:
- Be inclusive. Not everyone at a university/college drinks or can legally drink. Hosting activities related to drinking excludes nearly 75% of students.
- Honor our partner organization’s practices. Our partner organization does not accept donations from the sale of alcohol.
- Foster authentic conversations about ending extreme hunger by 2030. From experience, we’ve learned the most impactful interactions occur when everyone is sober.
- Abide by the law and the policies of our university/college. Many college students are not old enough to drink legally. Even when they are, student organizations generally are not permitted to utilize alcohol for any club or organization activity. Use of alcohol or any illegal or dangerous substances may result in the university cutting funding to a FeelGood chapter or dissolving a FeelGood chapter.
As a FeelGood Chapter, we will, therefore:
- Not hold any events or activities at which alcohol or illegal or dangerous substances are served or consumed; and
- Take appropriate steps to prevent participants from bringing alcohol or illegal or dangerous substances to chapter events or activities or from participating in chapter events or activities while under the influence of alcohol or illegal or dangerous substances.
