Learn about diverse drinking cultures and different drinking patterns among youth through conversations and interactions with students from 12 countries on three continents;
Develop and improve project management and leadership skills, and be empowered to apply lessons learned, by implementing an alcohol-related harm prevention project on campus; and
Take part in a unique opportunity to have a positive impact on peer health and well-being, and share knowledge with all PEP-AH members.
