Healthy Relationships Girl's Group

This girl's support group provides awareness and education about relationship violence issues and healthy relationship choices. We will talk about different types of relationship violence, power and control, the cycle of violence, and warning signs of an abusive relationship.  We will also focus on components of a healthy relationship: positive self-esteem, communication skills, boundaries and equality.  The girls meet on Mondays.


On Tuesdays from 11:00-12:00 the students in the Reach program will be provided education and awareness on topics covered in our Positive Choices and Drug and Alcohol Awareness programs.  We will focus on anger management, communication skills, conflict resolution, assertiveness training, self-esteem building and violence prevention.  We will also be covering drug and alcohol issues focusing on marijuana and alcohol primarily.  Students will learn how alcohol and marijuana use may affect their lives and their health in negative ways.  The program also offers support and encouragement for students who no longer want to use drugs.
