If you are a teen right now you probably know what it feels like to have a lot of pressures (school, friends, social media-just to name a few) in your daily life.  It can be hard to know how to make the best choices for a successful and positive life now, and for the future. 

That’s why we are here to help!  With our Healthy Choices risk-avoidance education programs, we walk alongside teens through their middle school and high school years of life-changing growth and give support in some of the toughest areas of decision making for students. 

Don’t know what to do with the daily stress of life as a teen?  Through one-on-one mentorship, group presentations, and other events, we encourage, equip, and offer accountability for students who want a little extra help and support with the choices they are faced with in our quickly evolving culture.

We can help with:

  • Friendships
  • Social media
  • Dating and relationships
  • STI Education and support
  • Drug and alcohol education and support
  • Inspiration and motivation
  • Resisting peer pressure
  • Goal setting
  • Making Healthy Choices
  • Referrals

If you are student, schedule an Appointment for one-on-one classes or mentorship! We would love to connect with you!
