Our program focuses on building individual strengths and minimizing risk factors which help adolescents grow up to be healthy, caring, and responsible. Research shows that the more of these assets a young person has, the less likely they are to abuse drugs, skip school, fight, or attempt suicide. We strive to help young people develop as many of these building blocks as possible – which will ultimately help them succeed in school, resist danger, maintain good health, overcome trouble and grow to their full potential
