Middle School Prevention Programs

Helping young people make healthy choices every day.

Middle school is a battlefield. Our lessons recognize the landmines that middle schoolers encounter each day and teach them how to navigate things like peer influence, setting/achieving goals, alcohol, and drugs in a healthy way.

 

In the transition to virtual services, we have had to restructure what we offer. View our program list below, or check the PDF above to see which programs are currently available.
