What We Do
How We Do It
We deliver customized educator trainings that include a review and assessment of your current needs, training development and delivery, curriculum integration, and follow-up support, as needed. Trainings are done on-site, offered in a one, two, or three day format. Each training is tailored to your school’s needs.
The training and the developed curriculum are approached in a holistic manner that honors both the mind and the heart of all individuals involved. This approach creates a significant and positive experience for both educators and youth.
The first step is a complimentary exploratory conversation to be sure that this training is a right fit for your district. We will discuss your ideal vision and goals for your district and develop a Game Plan for getting there. With this information we can discern if our educator training is the right fit to help you make your vision a reality. Contact us to discuss your needs and schedule a conversation.
The Next Generation Of Drug Prevention
As the primary provider of alcohol and drug prevention for youth, schools bear the burden of keeping their curriculum current with research in fields as diverse as addiction, toxicology, brain science and behavioral change. However, with all the latest drug research and factual information, drug use among youth is increasing and in some places reaching epidemic levels.
We believe that the Next Generation of Drug Prevention involves touching not only young peoples minds with facts, but touching their hearts with a more compassionate and deeper approach that addresses the reasons why youth look to drugs in the first place. Our training provides educators with Facilitator Keys that support this deeper and more courageous conversation which gets to the root or the HEART of the matter.
