Red Card Green Card

Red Card Green Card

Red Card Green Card is a partnership between the Center for Civic Engagement and The Nebraska Grocers Association. It is designed to encourage stores in Lincoln to maintain integrity and keep our citizens safe by checking IDs when young adults buy/attempt to buy alcohol. Each semester, one group or organization sends pairs of people to 4-6 different designated locations once a month to do the compliance checks.

What your group will do

As you will be trying to purchase alcohol, you will need at least one 21 year old in each pair and typically will need a minimum of eight 21 year olds and eight students under the age of 21. Each pair will make three compliance checks, one per month for each semester. After each compliance check, a report is submitted. At the end of the semester, a pizza party celebration will occur, along with your group receiving a check for $300. It is a fun way to bond with your group or organization members while giving back to the community. If you are interested, please contact the Center for Civic Engagement at (402) 472-6150, serice-learning@unl.edu, or stop in and visit us at 222 Nebraska Union.
