Curriculum

All youth drug prevention curriculums implemented in schools and community sites are nationally approved and provide facts about alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. These facts help students set goals and make good decisions for their life. Curriculum lessons give students skills for: managing emotions, communicating, making friendships, developing social skills, analyzing media messages and dealing with peer pressure. It is our goal to help build self-efficacy and become positive role models while implementing curriculum at community sites. Learn more about our curriculum….
