P.A.D.E. (Fontaine Center Peers for Alcohol & Other Drug Education) provides peer-education on alcohol and other drug issues while representing the Fontaine Center. P.A.D.E. operates with the understanding that UGA students make a variety of choices regarding alcohol. P.A.D.E. helps prepare students to decrease the risk of negative consequences in an environment where alcohol or other drugs are present.

Eligibility for P.A.D.E. requires that you are a current UGA student, either undergraduate or graduate, and includes both students who drink and those who abstain. Members of P.A.D.E. commit to the group for a minimum of 1 year. Group members will be trained on alcohol and other drug content, so previous knowledge and experience is helpful, but not required.
