Our K-5 Prevention Programs...

Elementary School Prevention Programs

Helping young people make healthy choices every day.

In K-5, we rarely talk about alcohol and drugs. Instead, we build life skills, like how to be a good friend, manage uncomfortable feelings, and solve problems peacefully. Our lessons are fun, engaging, and age appropriate.
