What Is All This?
The FailSafe toolkit is divided into modules. Each module has one or more activities for you and the members of your student organization to do. Some of the activities are just for you and the small leadership team we suggest you assemble. Some are for your entire membership and can be done at one of your group’s regular meetings. You’ll do other activities as regular practices once everyone in your group learns about them.
Each activity comes with a set of general instructions called an Overview. This, along with the video at the top of each module, tell you what the module is about, how it can help address one aspect of managing alcohol risks, and what you will need to do the activity. The Overview explains every activity in the module.
There is also a set of instructions in each module for the person serving as your Coach. The instructions provide tips for how the Coach can support you and hold the group accountable for doing the activities.
The toolkit also includes templates, forms, scripts, and other things you’ll need to do the activities. You can access all of these materials through a mobile device and print them out, if you choose. Some of these materials you’ll use as handouts for group activities and others provide you with guidance for leading a discussion or presentation.
The modules are in a specific order. We recommend that you work on them in that order. We strongly recommend that you begin with Modules 1 and 2 before working on any other module. Modules 1 and 2 help you and your members see what the group needs to work on; they give you a map for where to focus. Modules 3 to 6 each focus on issues that can help you to reduce risk, and Module 7 helps you to understand and share your organization’s successes at becoming FailSafe.
