Our team of in-school prevention specialist/educators teach the renowned Positive Action curriculum which involves a three-step process for learning the material. When a student has a positive thought, it can lead to a positive action which produces positive feelings.
The curriculum has at its core the idea that these three steps are the foundation for the overarching philosophy that when students make positive actions, they feel better about themselves. High self-esteem often results in better grades and healthier social interaction.
Ultimately, the goal is to equip students with good decision-making skills that prevent them from becoming involved with alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.
The Positive Action curriculum is a kit for every grade level from pre-kindergarten through grade 12. Our prevention specialist educators customize the scripted lessons depending on class size and profile. The goal is to honor the essence of the program which emphasizes actions that promote healthy thoughts, actions and feelings.
