Custom Curriculum and Seminars for Students

We will develop your curriculum from the inside-out through brief, periodic surveys and qualitative feedback from student focus groups. We then consider and apply strategies according to those insights so that programming is tailored to your community. For example, we may learn that:

  • Students want to know more facts about vaping

  • There are many questions about whether CBD and THC are harmful or addictive

  • Students want to partner with their school and parents to implement more substance-free weekend activities

  • Older students have questions about the role of alcohol with friendships and dating

  • Seniors are anxious about their upcoming transition to college

  • Middle school students are worried they will have to drink to fit in when they get to high school

  • Students feel that teachers value them and can be approached about health concerns  

Assessments

Schools value data for many reasons, but translating data into actionable steps can be challenging. This is why shorter surveys administered strategically throughout the year can provide bursts of insights we look for to propel change. 

 

We work alongside our school partners, as well as experts in survey design, to create a series of surveys designed to:

 

  • Take student needs into serious consideration

  • Provide insights that activate and hold accountable stakeholders in all corners of your community

  • Be respectful of anonymity, time, budgets and community character

  • Sustain prevention participation and dialogue

  • Bring us together around our strengths

Workshops for School Staff, Parents and Guardians will cover:

  • Signs a student could be using alcohol, nicotine or other drugs how they can help a student for whom they’re concerned; coaches’ role in prevention 

  • What the data and assessments suggest about their roles in prevention and how they can support students

  • How to initiate and maintain effective dialogue with your child

  • What you need to know about current trends

  • How and why to model healthy language and behaviors

  • How to identify and address potential, problematic use
