LIFE OF AN ATHLETE
Rather than merely teaching information about the dangers of drug abuse, Botvin LifeSkills Training promotes healthy alternatives to risky behavior through activities designed to:
Teach students the necessary skills to resist social (peer) pressures to smoke, drink, and use drugs
Help students to develop greater self-esteem and self-confidence
Enable students to effectively cope with anxiety
Increase their knowledge of the immediate consequences of substance abuse
Enhance cognitive and behavioral competency to reduce and prevent a variety of health risk behaviors
This program gathers together city officials, liquor store owners, law enforcement and students with the hope to reduce underage drinking, spread awareness and educate our community.
Skills for Action 9-12
High school is the critical transition period when students prepare for success in college, career, and life. The innovative and flexible curriculum moves beyond the classroom to foster civic responsibility and build essential social, emotional, academic and workplace skills. In Lions Quest Skills for Action, students develop the means to resist negative peer pressure, make healthy choices: and understand and appreciate diversity in the classroom, school, and broader community.
