In today's fast-paced world, children face a whole new set of choices, challenges and threats. Our science-based programs emphasize prevention by teaching kids what they need to know to make good choices and develop healthy habits for a lifetime. We infuse interactive educational experiences that meet community needs, state learning objectives and national health priorities.



There's no better way to engage the community than by bringing the community together. Our special events, presentations and camps are geared to reinforce our mission...while we have some fun doing it! We have a little something for everyone...mothers looking for the ideal lunch date with their daughters, camps for the science nut or a presentation to provide tips on how to talk to your kids about some of the uncomfortable subjects.

We've seen a lot of changes in the lives of young people over the past 40 years. With technology being integral in the learning process and the abundance of both good and bad information out in the world, it's more important than ever to make sure that we give our kids the facts about sexuality and drugs! Keeping current is crucial and we need your support.
