We teach critical life skills and promote behavioral health and wellness to students and their families at schools and community sites. Our programs use evidence-based curriculums that are age-appropriate for kindergarten through twelfth-grade students.
CAP (College Achievement Program)
A program that helps students and their families plan for, apply to, and access resources to pay for college. CAP advisors meet individually with students and their parents and conduct presentations at schools and community sites. Students are entered in a $1,000 college scholarship drawing when they complete the program.
Strengthening Families Program (SFP)
A program for high-risk and general population families that helps them increase communication skills, improve relationships, manage stress, and reduce bad behavior. The multi-week sessions meet in the evening at schools and community sites.
Pathways To Success
A leadership program that helps high school students gain the knowledge and skills necessary to be effective leaders and volunteers. Students must be tobacco, alcohol, and drug-free, maintain a minimum B grade point average, and complete 46 volunteer hours. Students that complete the program receive $500 college scholarships.
First through eighth-grade students maintain mental acuity, increase their love of education, and learn healthy behaviors. It includes the MINDUP curriculum that teaches how the brain influences behavior. The program is in the summer at school campuses and community sites.
Parents who expect a baby or have a child under age three develop skills that ensure their children’s successful growth and development. They earn a $500 gift card when they complete The Incredible Years curriculum, the Safe Riders Child Safety Seat training, and the Shaken Baby Syndrome course.
Curriculum-Based Support Groups (CBSG)
Pre-K through twelfth-grade students learn to manage difficult family situations, resist negative peer pressure, respect themselves and others, and set goals. Students are recommended based on behavioral, educational, and environmental concerns.
