Aspire programs focus on empowering our youth with skills that set them up for healthy relationships and optimal health! We want our students to achieve their future goals (hopes & dreams). We also know that students face many influences and obstacles on their path to their future. We spend time engaging with our students about how influences and obstacles affect their behavior and relationships. We empower them to further develop their critical thinking skills that equip them to make risk-avoidance decisions.
Our relationship based classroom program is FUN – yes, we mean it! We use classroom demonstrations, activities, worksheets, videos and much more!
Students, we are so excited to meet you in your classroom! We promise it will be a time you will never forget!
