National GORDIEday is held annually as part of National Hazing Prevention Week each September as a way to raise awareness about alcohol overdose and encourage students to intervene when a friend is in distress.
Featured in the guide are free downloadable resources including the GORDIEday Teaser Campaign and the Pledge To Check.
If you plan to participate in National GORDIEday, please register to receive a Gordie Center laptop sticker and a pair of green Gordie Center sunglasses! We will send a survey to participating schools after GORDIEday to learn more about your GORDIEday events, and one lucky school who completes the survey will receive a GORDIEstore prize pack!
Be sure to check out our Pledge to Check supporter, The Medical Amnesty Initiative, a non-profit organization with a mission to educate young people about medical amnesty laws and eliminate the fear of legal consequences that often discourages a minor from calling 911 in an alcohol emergency.
In addition to the planning guide, you can download the National GORDIEday Presentation, which can be used as a stand-alone presentation, incorporated into current presentations, or used to facilitate discussion for the HAZE film. Download additional free National GORDIEday resources.
