We offer schools and community groups a range of educational peer-taught components for ages 10 to 18. Through our teen panels, curricula and campus clubs, we empower teens with the knowledge, tools, motivation and support they need to navigate through a very challenging youth culture. Our interactive educational components and support activities promote building healthy relationships, making well thought out decisions, and setting goals for the future.
