Friday Nights Done Right!

Friday Night Done Right is called a Social Norming Campaign, which simply means we help teens focus on fun activities that don't include drinking and drugs or other risky activities.  It also helps spread the fact that the majority of teens are not "using" which is a powerful motivator for teens to stay away from these risky activities.

Sumter CAP Strategies

Sumter CAP Strategies

Sumter CAP has adopted or developed the following strategies in addition to Friday Nights Done Right to help our community reduce substance abuse and other unhealthy activities. Some are in partnership with other community organizations.

No One's House

 No One's House is a parent-to-parent campaign that works to reduce the amount of parents in a community who are providing teens with alcohol and/or allowing teens to drink in their homes. By pledging, you agree that you will not provide teens alcohol and will not willingly allow teens to drink alcohol at your home.  For more information go to http://www.nooneshouse.com/

I Steer Clear

This program informs students about the effects of drugged driving whether alcohol or other substances.  Students have an opportunity to pledge Steer Clear of drugged driving.  Isteerclear.com for more information
